JBL Quantum Cup announcement
Its time to level up with JBL who today announced a first-of-its-kind global gaming tournament that puts you at the centre of the action. Partnering with ESL the JBL Quantum Cup will include Fortnite, Valorant and my personal favourite PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
The biggest gaming influencers in the world are set to compete but something truly unique in the JBL Quantum Cup is that YOU can also compete during qualifying rounds of the global Fortnite challenge for a chance to show the world what you got and to advance to the finals of the JBL Quantum Cup. This isn’t the only way you can win during the tournament either, you will have the opportunity to win multiple prizes to ultimately level up your battlestation just by watching the cup unfold!
“Knowing how important sound is for competitive gaming, our teams are extremely excited to partner with JBL and participate in the first-ever JBL Quantum Cup to show the top names in esports how much of an edge the JBL Quantum headsets give us in competition,” said Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, 100 Thieves Founder and CEO. “We’re looking forward to playing alongside our fans during the stream and showing the strength of our Valorant team – led by Hiko – as well as our successful Fortnite teams.”
The competition runs for 3 days starting December 12 and running until December 14 with a prize pool of $200,000 and of course the honour of being crowned the JBL Quantum Cup champion!
Registrations are now open for gamers to enter the JBL Quantum Cup’s global Fortnite Duo tournament and you can register at JBLQuantumCup.com now through until November 30.
