Enthusiast Gaming Live Expo Announces Some Celebrity Guests & More

Sure, this is not an Xbox One specific news article, but given we are a Canadian based website, and we try to cover as much Canadian news as we can amongst all the other news, we thought it would be cool to let you know all about this.

Canada’s largest video game expo returns this fall with Enthusiast Gaming Live Expo (EGLX) scheduled to take place from Friday, October 26th – Sunday October 28th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. 

EGLX has hosted the largest and most diverse lineup of games, publishers, sponsors and developers in Canada, with a huge increase in attendees in recent years, culminating in the move to the largest convention facility in Canada. 

As part of this exciting growth, EGLX will also become the destination for two massive esports events, with the addition of Canada Cup 2018 and World Electronic Sports Games (WESG) both holding tournaments on the show floor.

Canada Cup has grown into one of the nation’s largest fighting game tournaments, with participants going head-to-head in DragonBall FighterZ, Super Smash Bros.: WiiU/Melee, Street Fighter V Arcade Edition, Hearthstone and many more.  

WESG, operated by WorldGaming Network in partnership with Alisports (a division of Alibaba), is entering its 3rd year as the only Olympics-format esports competition in the world. With players and teams competing to represent their home countries, WESG boasts one of the largest esports prize pools in the world at over $5.5 million dollars. The WESG Canadian national qualifying finals will be held at EGLX and players will compete in some of the largest esports games in the world (Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), DOTA 2, StarCraft 2 and Pro Evolution Soccer) with the opportunity to represent Canada at the WESG Global Grand Finals in Shanghai in March 2019.

It was also announced that Mitch Marner, from the Toronto Maple Leafs, along with other celebrities, would be attending.  We assume more announcments of who these celebritites are will come as the expo gets closer.
