The Republic of Benin and Nicecactus are joining forces to offer multi-territory gaming tournaments to esport players from all over Africa.
Placed under the high patronage of His Excellency, Mr. Patrice TALON, President of the Republic of Benin and Nicecactus, the International Africa Gaming Cup (IAGC) is the largest continental competitive gaming tournament.
The partnership with Nicecactus will see three major community tournaments and activations on already three different games (and more to come), implemented all around the continent. The IAGC will consist of a series of qualifying events beginning on April 23rd 2022 and will conclude with the IAGC Final at the Cotonou Convention Center in July 2022.
Mike Hessabi, CEO and President of Nicecactus, said “Through IAGC, we hope to nurture and empower African talents. It fits with our philosophy at Nicecactus. We firmly believe that gamers worldwide should be afforded the same opportunities to compete, no matter where they are located physically. To implement a region wide series is a thrilling project for us, as well as for the Republic of Benin.”
The total cash prize of this series of events will be $100.000.
“We are grateful for the partnership we have formed with the Republic of Benin, and very much look forward to gathering with the global gamers community, both virtually and in-person in Cotonou, to celebrate the amazing African Gamers Community.” added Mike Hessabi.
