Triangle E-Sports Championship
February 10, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 8:30 pm$25 – $200
Kramden Institute and the Triangle Literacy Council, in partnership with the Durham Sports Commission, the Capitol Broadcasting Company, Sony and Lenovo, proudly announce the Triangle eSports Championship (TEC).
TEC 2019 will take place at the Durham Armory on Sunday, February 10th and bring together thousands of eSports enthusiasts and gamers to compete against one another in the Triangle’s first charitable gaming tournament of its kind. In addition to the gaming tournament, many of the area’s largest technology and gaming firms will participate as sponsors, exhibitors or vendors at the event.
TEC 2019 is not just to showcase the Triangle as an emerging eSports/gaming hotspot, but to funnel all proceeds from the event to fund digital inclusion efforts to Triangle residents offered by Kramden and the Triangle Literacy Council. While the Triangle is known worldwide as a technology hub, tens of thousands of students and their families in the area still struggle to use technology to their advantage.
By partnering together, TLC and Kramden have helped thousands across the area become digitally literate and equipped with the technology training and tools they need to succeed in school, to find economic opportunity, and to help their communities flourish.
To help us make this event successful, we are asking that you pre-register for the Fortnite tournament and/or the Rocket League tournament. As much as we would love to game 24/7, we have limited time and space. We have only 32 team spots available for Rocket League and 200 spots available for Fortnite solos so make sure you have a spot and pre-register here:
