This year at the Electronics & Gaming Expo (EGE), we’re offering attendees cash prizes and more across a variety of titles.

As with the 2016 edition of EGE, Friday is the ‘school’s day’. That means cheaper entry for learners in school uniform, as well as number of tournaments geared specifically for school goers too.

Yes, for the Friday only, scholars in their school uniform will be allowed full access to EGE for only R20. The tickets will be available at the door and the proceeds from these tickets will be given to charity.

For all scholars in attendance, there will also be both a FIFA 17 and Injustice 2 tournament complete with cash prize pool. Up for grabs in each tournament will be R1,000 cash.

Both tournaments are scheduled to start at 15h00 and will be single elimination. Participants can start registering from 14h30 at the venue. We will be capping entries per title at 64 players. You will only be allowed to participate in one of the titles.

For those keen on trying out some Dota 2 or other titles, we will have stations available from the minute the expo starts and may even offer some adhoc mini-tournaments or challenges if we see a hunger and interest.

Please note that even as a scholar, you are more than welcome to participate in any of the weekend’s tournaments on offer. You will however need to get a standard day pass for access on Saturday and Sunday.

Whatever your preference, Friday at EGE for scholars is one not to miss. So maybe try and convince your teacher or headmaster that EGE is a great field trip for the entire school…
