About Rush

A RAGE ESPORTS INITIATIVE.

Brought to you by the same bunch of excitable humans who breathe life into the much-loved rAge expo each year, Rush is the very first esports event of its kind in South Africa.

Rush aims to bring a number of different esports tournaments and activities together under one roof. This multi-tournament, multi-platform, multi-game event will give visitors the opportunity to experience the exciting world of competitive video gaming first-hand. A variety of esports tournaments will be showcased, with cash prizes and overseas trips up for grabs for the winners.

Rush is where fans, supporters, enthusiasts and newcomers to esports will be able to experience the thrill of watching SA’s top gamers and teams/clans compete for prizes on dedicated stages, complete with big screens and live commentary. Even if you’re not a serious competitive gamer, there’ll be competitions for which you can sign up, giving you the chance to win prizes for showing off your gaming skills.

Come and support this growing industry, and discover what esports is really all about!
