Monday December 17th, 2018, Indianapolis, US:  Today leading eSports center management software company ggCircuit LLC officially announced its ggCircuit Winter WAN Tournament, featuring Fortnite, which will take place from 10-13th January 2019, in participating LAN centers across the globe.  With a total prize pool of $25,000 up for grabs Fortnite fans who sign up have the option of competing in both Solo and Duo Battle Royal matches all played on dedicated Fortnite servers.

The tournament will take place at officially registered LAN centers across the Americas, Europe and Oceanic. Each region will hold a series of qualifying heats and the winners of these rounds will move forward to take part in the championship face-off.  Cash prizes will be awarded to the 1st and 2nd place winners of each Solo Championship match and the 1st place winners of each Duo Championship match in each region.

We are incredibly excited to be working with our friends at Epic Games on this Fortnite tournament through our network of ggLeap enabled LAN Centers,“ commented Zack Johnson, CEO at ggCircuit.  “We want to encourage as many independent LAN centers as possible to register so they can offer their gaming customers the chance to kick off 2019 in high gear by taking part in this global tournament, playing one of the most fun and popular esports games of all times.”

Gamers who want to take part in this amateur esports tournament are encouraged to contact their local LAN center to see if they have signed up yet as an official host center.  A growing list of participating LAN centers can be found here: https://www.ggleap.com/locations/.  Players must be 16 yrs of age or older.  For more information, rules and regulations gamers can visit the official ggCircuit Winter Wan Tournament website https://fortnite.ggcircuit.com/

About ggCircuit

ggCircuit LLC started out as a grassroots movement by a group of passionate LAN Center owners/managers that wanted to provide better management software for esports centers, cybercafes, universities and LAN centers worldwide.  Drawing on their collective experience they developed a state-of-the-art software management system, ggLeap, that was not only easy and flexible for centers to use but delivered end user features that kept gamers engaged and offered more than they would get by playing at home.

Since 2008, ggCircuit LLC has provided nationwide tournaments through their ggCircuit Seasons competition system using ggLeap. In 2013, ggCircuit evolved into a global competition and reward system adopted by LAN centers around the world. The first version of the ggLeap esports center management software launched in 2016 which brought the world of center management software, global competition, and prize redemption all into one package. Ever since then, ggLeap has been continually iterated upon to offer better functionality and features for both managers and gamers.

The global adoption rate of ggLeap has been rapidly growing over the last few years, a snapshot of centers can be found here https://www.ggleap.com/locations/ .  With the recent launch of ggLeap 1.0 and supporting new features, this is set to take off in 2019.  More interesting statistical data points on the eSports demographic pulled from the ever expanding ggLeap network can be seen here: Growth and industry stats https://stateoftheindustry.ggcircuit.com/.

As an ever-evolving management tool, ggLeap is under constant development to add new features that benefit both center managers and players.  With 24/7 customer support and a dedicated and experienced management team to drive initiatives forward, ggLeap is set to lead the way in eSports management software solutions for years to come.
