Mobile esports title Vainglory will have its first major organised competition on the East Coast in New York City.
The Vainglory Invitational Series (or VIS) has announced that its first event in Manhattan will take place on September 24th in the form of the VIS Summer Season All Star Game.
This will include Team SoloMid’s FlashX, Cloud9 pair Hardek and LostBoyToph, Team Phoenix’s Oldskool and CullTheMeek as well as Hammers eSports’ Aloh4.
Previous Vainglory events have been held in LA and Seattle, unsurprising given that the developer of the game is based in San Francisco.
David Lee, Creator and Executive Producer of the VIS, said: “This is the first time anything like this is happening on the East Coast. It’s an awesome mesh of casual fans and pro players coming together and interacting in the same space.”
The event will be live streamed on Twitch and MobCrush but if you’re in the New York area, it’s free to attend and you can get your place confirmed here.
