AOR 2019 Esports Team Tournament
February 21, 2019
Today, ApexOnlineRacing and EventsHouse are excited to launch the “AOR 2019 Esports Teams Tournament”. With a £5,000 prizepool running on all three platforms and a live UK final with the top 3 teams from each platform, coming together to battle it out on the same platform.
Running on Codemasters’ F1 2018, using 50% races and requiring everyone to be a minimum age of 16 years old, this is the tournament to be in. The online part of the tournament will span across 9 weeks. A race on each week for every platform (PC, PS4, XB1), which will be broadcast from the new AOR TV studio, powered by Events House, to the Official AOR YouTube Channel. We will see the best Esports Drivers come together for a titanic battle to find the best team on each platform.
So, what are you waiting for? The tournament is open to new and old teams. All you need to do to qualify is get two of your drivers to set three time trials each, around the set tracks. The times are then combined and ranked. The top 10 times, per platform, will progress to the Online racing!
But it doesn’t end there. The top 3 teams from each platform are then invited to attend a Live Final at a current secret UK location. More details on the final will be released very soon. But you will have to ensure you can travel to the UK to attend it, otherwise the next-in-line team will be invited.
Want to get involved? Sign ups are now open and you can find out more information here.
This isn’t a one-off. This has been over 6 months in the planning and we’re excited to bring you even more esports competitions throughout the calendar year. More information will follow on this soon.
