Hey! Remember that one time we wrote that thing to announce that we’ve partnered up with Vodacom 4U to host three shnazzy tournaments at Rush 2018? Good, because this thing we’re writing right now probably, maybe, but almost definitely ties directly into that.
We’re ready to announce the prize pools for the CS:GO, FIFA 18 and Fortnite tournaments that’ll be taking place throughout the Rush weekend. All the details are below the break.
All in all, Vodacom 4U and Huawei have put up a massive R220,000 in cash and prizes to be shared among the first, second and third prize winners of each of the three tournaments. In addition to the various cash prizes, Vodacom 4U and Huawei are adding a stack of smartphones, routers and free data to sweeten the pot.
First up, let’s have a look at that CS:GO prize breakdown:
First place: R25,000 (cash) + 5 x Huawei P20 Pro + 5 x Vodacom data bundles
Second place: R12,500 (cash) + 5 x Huawei Y7 + 5 x Vodacom data bundles
Third place: R5,000 + 5 x Huawei B618 routers + 5 x Vodacom data bundles
