It has been announced that Gfinity will be launching a new Serious Rainbow Six Siege tournament with UK grime musician Jme as both host and participant.
There’ll be a prize pool of £2,500 and a LAN final at the Gfinity Arena in Fulham, London.
Qualifiers began on August 28th and the most impressive teams will qualify for the LAN finals on September 9th. Those who get that far will be able to face off against the co-founder of Boy Better Know and his team on stage at the arena.
Jme is well known for his love of gaming, and the Xbox on which this competition will be played out is his console of choice.
He said: “I’m online murking just as much as I’m on stage, it was only a matter of time until this happened. I’ve got my team, Headtop, and we’re more than ready.”
For those unable to make it on the day the action will be live streamed on both Gfinity’s Twitch channel and Jme’s own Youtube channel.
Sam Van Tilburgh, Head of Marketing at Gfinity said: “It’s going to be wonderful with Jme and supporting the competitive Rainbow Six community with another platform, with a twist. Bringing music and games together is something we’re keen to explore.”
