The first Education City open esports tournament, which will be held on September 9 and 10, aims to tap into the growing popularity of sporting competition through video games and build its profile in Qatar while supporting the rise of an esports community in the country and potentially opening up new career paths for young people, taking place at Multaqa (Education City Student Centre).
The free-to-enter competition, which will be held on the brand-new social gaming platform Showdown, will feature individuals competing in two popular games – FIFA 22 and Super Smash Brothers – for a chance of winning a QR 20,000 in cash prize.
The platform has been developed by Qatar-based venture Project Infinite which has been supported by funding through Qatar Foundation’s (QF) Innovation Coupon. Showdown offers a secure gaming environment as well as the ability to participate in competitions, allowing both professional and amateur esports athletes and gamers to construct and build their profiles as their careers progress.
