GAME, the well established high-street brand in the UK has announced its first nationwide UK esports tournament which will take place in its BELONG competitive stores.
The tournament, sponsored by Activision is to be played on Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and will boast a prize pool of £1,000.
The format will span five weeks from March 11th, and is open to teams of four players. Players will be able to enter at five of the BELONG Arenas in Bristol, Gateshead, Hull, Manchester and Portsmouth.
The winners of the tournament will not only take home £500, but they will earn a spot for the 2017 Call of Duty World League (plus travel and accommodation) which will be played in Birmingham between 14-17th April.
BELONG is an area that GAME has recently branched into in an attempt to add an extra facet to a business that otherwise has started to struggle. With the rise of Steam, the PSN store and even the likes of online retailers who may traditionally offer cut price games, it’s a tricky space to be involved in.
