Sunday 9th of Dec 2018 12:00:00 AM


The PLG Grand Slam is right around the corner, taking place from 13th to the 15th December at Al Jazira Club in Abu Dhabi and du Forum Yas Island. The event invites passionate gamers and professional eSports players alongside rising stars to compete and challenge each other on all their favourite titles. It will be the marquee eSports event in the PLG calendar for 2018 and we hope for the foreseeable future. The finale for some players both domestic and international will be the pinnacle of their careers so far, while others will be looking to notch up another victory to add to their legacy.

The event brings with it 200k USD in cash prize pool, 4 strategic partners, Intel, Lenovo, HP and VOX Cinemas alongside flagship venues Yas Hotel, Mubadala Dome, Yas Marina Circuit and du Forum. Over 200 professional eSports players from 30 different nations will fly into Abu Dhabi to compete, be entertained and receive world class hospitality in the nation's capital. You can even watch, meet and challenge pros on the game they made a name for themselves on or perhaps ones they don't usually play.


Very importantly Grand Slam is not only for the 1% elite and those of incomprehensible talent on a video game. The event has numerous paths and routes for amateur players to have fun and compete against friends, family, peers and rivals with a tonne of rewards. Games such as CSGO, Fortnite, League of Legends, Tekken 7, Rocket League, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Pokémon TCG, Overwatch and even classics like Medal of Honor, Quake III and Unreal Tournament will be available.
