Dubai-based eSports organisation Galaxy Racer will be hosting a Fortnite tournament alongside Arsenal superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Titled the 'Galaxy Racer Aubameyang Cup', a prize pot of over £8,000 will be up for grabs for players that enter into this tournament, featuring a seismic gaming name that has always been notoriously competitive over the years.

Aubameyang, along with his brother William-Fils, will be making guest appearances at the first-ever cross-regional competition that will take place online, including interviews and a 2v2 matchup with Galaxy Racer’s Fortnite players, Milan ‘milan’ Lopes and Maciej ‘Teeq’ Radzio during the event.

Commenting on the announcement, Aubameyang said: “I’ve been a die-hard Fortnite gamer for years, and my competitive, footballing mindset has naturally made me fascinated by esports, so I’ve been interested to get involved in it for some time.

“I want to help break down barriers to make esports as competitive as possible, and the Galaxy Racer Aubameyang Cup has been created to do just that; giving the very best players from across the world the chance to battle it out on the global stage on an incredibly exciting but fair platform.”
