Teams from around the country will be battling it out for South Africa’s biggest ever eSports cash prize of R1 million at the Telkom Digital Gaming League Masters finals for CS:GO and DOTA 2 at rAge in October, with world-class shoutcaster Paul “ReDeYe” Chaloner hosting. Double whammy!
“Telkom took the decision to back eSports in January. Since the launch we have seen tremendous growth in this sector, with new tournaments opening up and other large prize pools being offered. This is all good news for eSports and we are excited by the future opportunities this gives the MGOs and sponsors alike,” says Telkom PR Jacqui O’Sullivan.
“Both the DGC and DGL further cements Telkom’s commitment to eSports in South Africa. Not only does this make good business sense for the company but it can only grow the sport in South Africa. The more corporates that get behind eSports the better. By attracting the talent we have to this year’s DGL we only see big things in future for the league.”
The competing teams include:
- Aperture Gaming
- Bravado Gaming
- CarboN eSports
- Damage Control
- Flipsid3 Tactics South Africa
- Veneration E-Sports
- White Rabbit Gaming
rAge is happening 7-9 October at the Ticketpro Dome in Joburg.
