Amp Your Game
This coming Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Canada's biggest national video gaming tour is coming to the Harbourfront Centre in downtown Toronto. Amp Your Game is stopping in nine major cities across the country during its tour, from Halifax to Vancouver. Along the way, Canadian gaming team North of 49, now sponsored as the Amp Energy Pro team, will be looking for someone to become their fourth member.
The event will cover 3,500 square feet, contain 80 gaming stations, hundreds of the latest game and have plenty of activities for casual and seasoned gamers alike. Event attendees will get to be witness to gaming tournaments, have a shot at open gameplay with hundreds of titles, check out the live DJ entertainment and have the chance to win a number of prize giveaways. Best of all, the event is free.
As mentioned above, Nelson “G-SpOt” Triana, Leo “Alpha XFactor” Vitelli and Bo “The Bo” Kovacevic from North of 49 will be on hand, looking for a fourth member for the team. Gamers at each leg of the tour will have a chance to compete for the open spot on the team. Registration is open until 10:00 p.m. Central Time on the Sunday before each city's stop. The top four competitors in each city will win cash prizes, as well as the opportunity to continue competing for the spot and a sponsorship from Amp Energy.
