The JBL Quantum Cup - A Global Gaming Tournament

Are you an elite gamer worthy of competing in a global gaming tournament that people from around the whole world will be watching? Nah, me neither, but JBL has partnered with ESL (Electronic Sports League...I Googled it for you and you're welcome) to bring this experience to us all.

So this all kicks off in Australia and New Zealand on the 12th of December 2020 and you lucky gamers and game fans will be able to watch a bunch of elite electronic legends go head to head in some epic shooters and Battle Royale staples such as Fortnite, Valorant and PUBG.

The main difference with the tournament is that you will be able to join in for the qualifying rounds of Fortnite for the chance to advance to the finals of the JBL Quantum Cup which means that if you're good enough (which I already know I am not) you could be playing against the pros. 

Fear not, because being an absolute weapon on the digital battlegrounds is not the only way you can get yourself some awesome loot an prizes. There will be multiple prizes up for grabs for those that simply get involved and watch the worlds best as they are streamed all the way into your home.

So, whether you are a gun player, or just a keen watcher, the three day JBL Quantum Cup event will bring something amazing to all those that choose to get involved. Who knows, you could be the next world champion and you just don't know it yet.

Check out my Copy and Paste job below for all the fine details that you just might need to know to get in on this epic event.
