Not only is Vodacom the title sponsor of the rAge Expo this year, but they have also introduced an esports hub at Vodacom World, the brand’s Flagship Digital Mall located in Midrand, Johannesburg. This reaffirms Vodacom’s support of the South African gaming and the esports scene.
This esports hub will play host to a variety of gaming tournaments providing gamers with an opportunity to experience Vodacom’s network speeds first hand.
“We are excited to be introducing an esports hub at our digitally-led mall, Vodacom World. We believe there are great synergies between the gaming and esports scene and Vodacom in that the one glue that connects gamers with their games is the network capability, connectivity and speeds. We have no doubt that gamers who visit the mall during September will experience world-class gaming through SA’s leading network while competing for NAG LAN tickets that will give them access to rAge – tickets that can only be won at Vodacom World,” says Samantha Botha, Managing Executive: Retail Operations at Vodacom.
The competitions will be taking place from 9 -23 September 2019 and will be run by tournament leaders, Mettlestate. Anyone who heads to Vodacom World during this time will have the opportunity to take part in one of three mobile games – Fortnite, Dota Underlords or F1 Racing. There will be daily leader-boards with many incredible prizes up for grabs.
Casual and competitive gamers alike stand to win a host of Vodacom bundles and hampers, as well as the chance to get their hands on LAN tickets to the annual NAG LAN at rAge, which is set to take place from 27 to 29 September 2019. Considering that the NAG LAN is already sold out, these tickets are something money can’t buy and can only be won by competing in the competitions.
Winners will be announced daily, so if anyone misses out on their first shot, gamers can always head back and try again the next day.
