Simplicity Esports and Gaming Company to Host In-Store National Esports Tournament in Its 47 Gaming Centers Across 14 States

Simplicity Esports and Gaming Company announced today that it will host its first national esports tournament commencing on the busiest shopping day of the year, Black Friday.

Simplicity Esports and Gaming Company (WINR) (“Simplicity Esports”) announced today that it will host its first national esports tournament commencing on the busiest shopping day of the year, Black Friday. The free entry, cross-platform, $5,000 cash prize Fortnite® tournament will take place across the nationwide network of Simplicity Esports and PLAYlive Nation gaming centers.

In July 2019, Simplicity Esports completed the acquisition of PLAYlive Nation, Inc., expanding its nationwide footprint and furthering its mission to bring esports to the masses. The Fortnite® tournament is the first official companywide endeavor offering the general public an opportunity to compete on various dates throughout the months of November and December. Additional tournaments are forthcoming in various titles which will be announced in the near future.

Roman Franklin, President of Simplicity Esports, stated, “It is exciting to offer the esports gaming community the opportunity to compete in a National Tournament utilizing our nationwide footprint of esports gaming centers. Fortnite® is an obvious choice for our first tournament, as it is the most popular title played throughout our gaming centers. Our 47 brick and mortar locations have a vast reach, which allows the company to further engage publishers, casual gamers, and aspiring professional esports athletes. With 32 locations in shopping malls throughout North America, this holiday season represents an advantageous time to further introduce our brand and offerings to the public.“
