Alibaba’s WESG & Canada Cup coming to EGLX in October 2018

August 1, 2018

Competitive gaming has always been a cornerstone of EGLX, but this time we’ve really outdone ourselves.

First of all: WESG. The World Electronic Sports Games are the brainchild of Alisports (the esports wing of Alibaba) and the WorldGaming Network. As the only worldwide Olympic-style esports competition, WESG requires all team members be from the same country, and boasts over $5.5 million dollars in prizing. Canadian finalists will have the opportunity to compete for $150,000 CAD, and to represent Canada at the WESG Global Grand Finals in Shanghai in March 2019. We’re very proud to have been chosen to host the Canadian national qualifying finals for this worldwide spectacle.

We’ve also partnered with Canada Cup. The country’s largest annual Fighting game tournament series will be held within EGLX, at the MTCC, with $50,000+ CAD up for grabs across 25 tournament events.

And last but not least: free play! Sign up in person to join our multi-game free play area all weekend long. Full list of playable games coming soon.
