What to expect

The tournament will see participants compete in two popular competitive games, FIFA 22 and Super Smash Brothers to have a chance at winning QAR20,000 in cash prizes – which will be hosted on the new social gaming platform.

As Rabah Qunnaby, Project Infinite’s co-founder and CEO, explains: “Showdown is a flagship product which will be publicly launched at the Education City Open, giving players the opportunity to have custom-made profiles and show their skills, achievements, and rankings; as well as providing esports tournament organizers with the tools and technology to create, manage, and stream their tournaments while establishing and maintaining their brand’s exposure; and offering social features that allow people to follow other esports athletes and to be followed themselves.
