eSports company Galaxy Racer is announcing the launch of Australia’s largest independent Fortnite competitions for April 18th, with prize money of $10,000. The tournament will boast many of the OCE’s top 20 professional trios, as well as the chance for 10 amateur teams to win the right to challenge them!
Galaxy Racer is renowned for driving change in the rapidly growing industry. They have championed females in eSports, content creation in the Arab world and own the leading teams in Europe, Middle East and South East Asia and now are set to invest heavily in growing the Australian gaming market.

“With this event, Galaxy Racer is officially announcing its entry into Australia, but not just with Fortnite. We are investing in the entire esports ecosystem of Oceania, just as it did in the Middle East, South East Asia and Europe, building some of the biggest teams and players worldwide…” said Mr. Roy.
