Today we have launched the UK’s first nationwide Classic Gaming Championship. Qualifying heats will be held at various events and expos throughout the UK with the grand final taking place at Play Expo on Sunday 12th October 2014.
Heats have been confirmed at some of the UK’s biggest video gaming events such as EGX, EGX Rezzed and Play Expo. We are speaking with a number of other major event organisers to ensure good coverage across mainland UK. Event organisers are encouraged to contact us should they wish to hold a heat at their show.
