A €20,000 prize ($22,600) is the huge cash prize for winning any of the tournaments.

Qualifiers for the Fortnite section of the tournaments will be held on December 13th. However, according to the press release, qualifiers for the Rocket League tournaments have already been held. The teams that have qualified and will compete include the likes of Team Liquid, Natus Vincere, Team Queso, Team Vitality, BDS, Endpoint, Dignitas, and ForFunSmileyFace.

The event also features some huge sponsors returning to stick their fingers in the pot. Magnum, the top-of-the-range ice cream producer, Hyperice, the performance technology company, the telecommunications company Telis, alongside Intel, NRJ, and Melty.

Event to be broadcast in both English and French

The event will be broadcast live in both English and French, by eSports broadcasters Willy ‘Skyyart’ Dias, Grégory ‘XEWER’ Boye, and Pierre ‘Pialni’ Alexandre for Fortnite. Team Rocket Baguette and Boyan ‘Boyan’ Kaftandjiev.

At the press conference, Mike M Hessabi (President of Nicecactus), commented on the announcement of the event. “Sport is anchored in Monaco’s culture and occupies an important place in the principality’s landscape. Through the Monaco Gaming Show, eSport and social gaming now have a yearly event of their own.

“Nicecactus is proud to organize this event for the second consecutive year with our partner, the Monaco Esports Federation, and under the high patronage of the Principality.”

It won’t just be the gaming tournaments for fans to watch, however. Those who attend the event will be able to partake in several more events and activities, that will be specified on the days of the show.

Louis Ducruet (President of the Monaco eSports Federation) also had something to say about the magnitude of the Monaco Gaming Show.

“The Monaco Gaming Show will allow us to confirm that we are open-minded and that the principality wants to be a pioneer in this field where other countries, bigger ones, have yet to address! This shows that we are at the exact right time to get involved.”

“Through this event, we want to demonstrate that Monaco is fully committed to becoming a champion in the field of eSport.”

A new event off to a great start

The Monaco Gaming Show is a relatively new eSports event, and in our opinion at Strafe.com, it’s off to a great start. It’s focusing on two of the more mainstream eSports titles in Rocket League and Fortnite, which is a great way for the event to get more mainstream coverage. However, you cannot deny the event is still quite small and doesn’t offer so much to stand out from many of the bigger eSports competitions such as the ESL and the International League.

It only offers a small cash prize for both Rocket League and Fortnite, as well as being fairly limited to within the European borders. However, it’s still a brilliant start, and it’s quite exciting for any fans of the two eSports titles.

You can catch the Monaco Gaming Show on Twitch from December 18th to December 20th. You can also check out the Monaco Gaming Show: Warmup Edition, which is currently being streamed as of today (December 2nd.)

It’s a single-elimination tournament for both Rocket League and Fortnite, which features Oxygen eSports, Endpoint, Giants Gaming, TrainHard eSport, Team Vitality, BDS, Solary, and Top Blokes.
