About Rush

A RAGE ESPORTS INITIATIVE.

Brought to you by the same bunch of excitable humans who also breathe life into the much-loved rAge expo each year.

Rush is an annual multi-game event that celebrates the very best that local esports has to offer. Tournament organisers will be hosting competitive gaming tournaments at Rush, where gamers, visitors and spectators will be able to experience the thrilling world of esports.

Whether you’re a professional esports player, someone who just wants to have some casual fun and see how good you are, or even a parent looking to find out more about your child’s obsession, Rush will have something for you.

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 an esports stage, complete with a big screen and live commentary (shoutcasting). Even if you’re not a serious competitive gamer, there might be a casual competition that you can enter, giving you the chance to win prizes for showing off your leet gaming skills.

Come and experience the energy and excitement of live esports first-hand!
