What is the MTN SHIFT Gaming Experience about?

The 2024 instalment of MTN SHIFT Gaming Experience is a vibey and accessible space for gamers of all ages to explore the latest in tech. This groundbreaking event features a series of eight qualifier events held at selected malls across the country over the next four months. The epic National Final will take place at Canal Walk in Cape Town this September.

There’s something for everyone, from casual players to seasoned pros with additional competitions and activations taking place at each mall event.

“The goal of our national gaming tournament is to create a vehicle for making esports accessible to everyone, breaking down barriers and removing the stigma that gaming is only for a certain age group,” explains Christie Stanbridge, Hyprop’s Brand and Campaigns Marketing Manager. “We aim to ensure that people from all walks of life can come together to play games and participate in the thrilling world of esports.”

“This event is a testament to the growing gaming culture in South Africa, and we are proud to support an initiative that not only showcases incredible talent but also brings communities together through the power of gaming,” says Jason Probert, General Manager of Digital Services at MTN South Africa. “MTN is committed to driving digital innovation and creating unique experiences for gamers across the country.”
