The event will host more than 30 separate eSports tournaments across all genres - including fighting games, racing, sports games, first-person shooters (FPS), and multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games - all showcased on top-of-the-line gaming PCs and the latest consoles.
Meanwhile, XP League will send 32 of its top-performing teams across the United States and Canada to the North American Finals.

This upcoming NC event will be the first of its kind for children in this age bracket. Covering two intense gaming days, only one XP League North American Champion Team will rise above all others. Fans, spectators, and fellow gamers are all set for a unique experience.
