Gaming for Cancer at Liberty LAN



Liberty LAN in support of Gaming for Cancer will host its LAN on 18 – 20 April, with a portion of every ticket sale going towards the fight against South Africa’s most deadly disease.

Gaming for Cancer is the organisation’s seventh national project with other well-known CANSA projects including Movember and the CANSA Shavathon.

The goal of Gaming for Cancer is to use gaming to raise awareness about cancer nationally by partnering with LANs and giving gamers the chance to participate in supporting the fight against a disease which will affect one in four South Africans through diagnosis of friends, family or self. Globally Cancer kills more people than TB, AIDS and Malaria combined.

As part of the LAN, competitions will be held for Dota 2, CS:GO and Call of Duty: Ghosts with prizes sponsored by Steel Series and Asus.

Furthermore, the Liberty LAN Easter is an 800 man LAN, so be sure you tell all your friends about the Open LAN and come show your support.

All teams are invited to compete in the Liberty LAN Easter Tournament for Dota 2, CS:GO and Ghosts at Emperors Palace Casino for cash and gear prizes sponsored by Asus and SteelSeries.

The respective tournaments will be open to up to 16 teams and will operate on a first come first serve basis. The first 16 teams to register for the event and pay their entrance fee online will be accepted.
