The lounge is one quite popular among young video game players with its luxurious setting located at three locations in the CBD. What surprises, even more, is that this will be the first tournament of this kind that the lounge plans and hosts. However, the competition is expected to be a tough one with a Kes. 175,000 total pool prize attached to it.
The tourney will be specialised with the latest FIFA 20 as the ultimate battlefield. This will definitely be one to see considering the gameplay changes that were brought in with FIFA’s latest edition that haven’ been as pleasing to a lot of players.

The grand prize Kes 100,000 will be given to the winner with the first and second runner-up earning Kes 50,000 and Kes 25,000 respectively.
This is our first-ever e-sports tournament to host and it will really be interesting to see the FIFA 20 competition live up to our expectations and be as successful to the players as it will be to us. A full-bblooded encounter for a number of reasons, many of them illegitimate.
It definitely is pleasing to see the world of e-sports growing with more parties coming in to bring as many opportunities to the country’s players. This tourney comes concurrently with Safaricom’s BLAZE e-sports competition going on at Dedan Kimathi University, Nyeri.
