Ultimate Gaming Championship will hold its annual Halo Classic at Bally’s Atlantic City in September.
The event will feature an open, double-elimination Halo 3 4v4 tournament with a prize pool of $50,000. The event will be streamed on Twitch and the UGC’s media channels. The UGC event will be presented by Caesars Entertainment and InGame Sports, which co-sponsored the EsportsTravel Summit’s opening reception at Boardwalk Hall last week.
According to the Press of Atlantic City, the event will be the third co-organized or co-sponsored by InGame thanks to a public-private partnership with the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority. The first two were held at Boardwalk Hall.
Tickets are on sale now for both spectators and teams. There will be an early wave of 16 team passes (four players and one coach), with three more additional waves at increased cost following.
