ASTRO Gaming will be hosting a Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 invitational tournament to celebrate the launch of ASTRO Gaming Headsets and apparel in the country.
The ASTRO Gaming Cup will take place at the rAge expo in Cape Town (19 March-21 March), where prizes to the value of R50 000 will be awarded to the top three placing teams.
The ASTRO Gaming Cup will see four of the top South African Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 teams (still to be announced) participate in a round robin to single elimination tournament, on the PlayStation 4. Attendees of the rAge Expo can view the matches live and will additionally be able to get a hands-on experience with the hottest headset in Africa.
“After the recent launch of the ASTRO brand in South Africa, and the immediate warm reception by the community, we wanted to help give back by supporting some of the local gaming events. We are excited to help support both rAge expo, and the South African gaming community by helping to provide another local platform for competition.” said Walter Duccini, Director of International Marketing for ASTRO Gaming.
The ASTRO Gaming CUP will be run by ZombieGamer in partnership with Clan Connection, who will be streaming every single second of the action as it unfolds at the rAge Expo.

Companies like ASTRO Gaming supporting local teams can only be good for the continued growth of the local eSports industry and I look forward to seeing how this all plays out on the day.” Michael James, Senior Project Manager rAge EXPO.
