Do you play Clash Royale? If so, you may wish to sign up to a new Clash Royale tournament offering cash prizes, hosted by The Electronic Sports League (ESL).
An LA Times article describes ESL, the eSports promoter as the world’s biggest video-game events company. The LA Times featured the company in October 2015, not long after ESL filled the 18,200 seat Madison Square Garden in New York City.
In late April 2016, ESL started hosting Clash Royale tournaments. These are fledgling steps into eSports for the Supercell stable of games. There are over 500 players registered for the 29 May tournament. Check here for the tournament rules.
Clash Royale is already set up to host tournaments, this is a fundamental part of the game and we can only see the prize money and player participation increasing as awareness of this tournament increases.
