Molineux is set to host a major UK and Ireland grassroots esports tournament, Estars featuring Fortnite, in February 2019.
Estars featuring Fortnite, which will see gamers and fans compete in a series of Battle Royales, will visit ten stadiums between January and March, coming to Molineux on 22nd - 24th February.
The games will be played across all levels - every user begins battles equals – and with Wolves away to Bournemouth that weekend, supporters are invited to get involved and play live against thousands of others.
General tickets will be on sale on www.estars.pro on Wednesday 21st November, 10am. Tickets are priced at £25 and no surplus fee charges will be applied.
This EStars community tournament is open to everyone from the age of 12 upwards to register and they will all be in with a chance to compete for fantastic prize money with over 600 individual cash prizes to be won, which will be spread out across the ten different locations.
The first leg of EStars featuring Fortnite will officially kick off in Glasgow at Celtic Park on 4th January. Those fortunate enough to secure a ticket to any of the events will go head to head against thousands of other players and fight it out for a coveted place at the EStars Grand Final, set to take place at Stamford Bridge, London on 31st March.
Grand Finalists will be in with a chance of claiming the overall jackpot prize, with the last gamer standing who claims the ultimate Victory Royale, walking off with £25,000.
