Melbourne’s biggest esports event is happening this weekend at Melbourne Park (Rod Laver, Margaret Court Arena and the general precinct). You would be easily excused for not having recognised just how big this is going to be, as the organisers have constantly worked to keep adding events as the weeks have gone on.
Tickets are still available, starting at $24 for a ground pass, but here are some of the reasons that you should be heading down to witness history this weekend.
THE SCHEDULE IS JAM PACKED
Seriously, looking at the schedule, I can’t believe just how much is happening across Melbourne Park this weekend. If you want to play games, you can check out several unreleased games at the JB HiFI Game On Zone. Overwatch fans can check out the Contenders Semifinals at Rod Laver, there’s a bunch of Fortnite related activities happening and more casual tournaments such as the NBA 2k18 free-play tournaments.
