Zombiegamer is taking its first tentative steps into the world of gaming events. After years of supporting SA gaming, we’ve decided it is time to put our money where our mouth is, and start to supply the gaming community with the events needed to help push the growth of both eSports on console and social gaming in general.
The first public appearance of the ZG Events team was at the 2013 Cape Tattoo Expo – an effort to bring gaming to a wider audience, which proved very successful if comments from all received were anything to go by.
That was followed by a small weekly event at Trenchtown in Observatory, Cape Town. With a rotation of games on a weekly basis, the idea was to offer a place to enjoy both competitive and casual gaming while socialising.
Since then, events have become varied and more ambitious. In the last few years, we have hosted over 20 Call of Duty LAN events (both individually and in partnership), substantially more FIFA tournaments, along with Halo, fighting, racing, and ultimate gamer style events. We have partnered with other organisations to ensure a wider variety of titles and platforms and have had the honour of being involved with events and expos such as EGE, UCON, Zombie Fest and more.
While the plan has always been to expand into all major cities, the main focus remains in Cape Town. We plan to work in conjunction with established and up-and-coming companies who are keen to be involved in the growth of gaming in South Africa. We will continue to work in partnership with other established gaming events companies whenever possible. We want you to join us, and would like to get feedback whenever possible on any event we may host, and that you may attend.
We are also pleased to announce the formation of the African Cyber Gaming League (ACGL) which is co-owned by Clint ‘Zombie Dredd’ O’Shea and Clan Connection’s Nick ‘HoldenZA’ Holden and is the eSports and tournament site that plans to offer South African competitive players all that they’ve been waiting for.
On top of that, if you are a company looking for consoles and TVs to rent for events (in Cape Town for now), feel free to drop Zombie ‘Clint’ Dredd an email and he will do what he can to assist – whether it’s equipment only, or management of a gaming portion to your planned event. Zombiegamer is also the operator of the Cape Town branch of TGN Racing Simulators.
