Greater Shepparton City Council presents the Greater Shepparton Cup eSports Tournament.
The Greater Shepparton Cup is an online video game tournament beginning in late June. Participants can choose to register for the video games, Super Smash Bro’s Ultimate or Rocket League.
“The competition runs over four weeks. The first stage of the competition separates the players into groups to verse each other in a round robin. From there, the top players of each group will move through to the second stage of the competition, where they play through eliminations to determine the ultimate winner,” said Project Officer at Word and Mouth, Jim Gow.
“The online video game tournament plays live on Facebook each Tuesday and Thursday night for the next four weeks. It’s a great way for participants to meet like-minded people and play some fantastic games at the same time.”
“Prizes are available for first, second and third place in each game, as well as the opportunity to be crowned the Greater Shepparton Cup eSports champion of 2020.”
Super Smash Bro’s Ultimate, played 1v1, is available on Nintendo Switch.
Rocket League, played 3v3, is available on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Registrations close on Monday 29 June, 11pm. To register, visit ael.org.au
Participants are required to own the video game and console compatible with the game they choose to register for.
The tournament can be streamed from the Word and Mouth Facebook page.
