Hybrid World Adelaide (HWA), South Australia’s inaugural digi-tech festival and Legacy Esports will partner to promote the growing esports phenomena this October.
Hybrid World Adelaide, which will run from 4-8 October, is also dipping its toe in the world of competitive video gaming, working with League of Legends game developer, Riot Games, to present a high school League of Legends tournament in a purpose-built LAN during the public program from 6-7 October at Tonsley. HWA and the Adelaide Football Club’s Esports team Legacy signed an MoU, agreeing to work together to promote esports in South Australia as a form of entertainment, and as a pathway to educational and economic benefits.
Legacy Sports will support HWA’s esports activity with Legacy player appearances and demonstrations, and commentating (or ‘shoutcasting’) by Tim “Carbon” Wendel, Legacy Head of Esports. HWA and Riot Games are presenting the first ever high school LAN tournament in South Australia, where school teams will meet up in person to play collectively. This will be the first such tournament supported by Riot’s world-first High School League of Legends Clubs initiative.
