CouchWarriors Expands Further Nationally with South Australia and New South Wales
After successful growth from Victoria into Queensland, Fighting Game Esports Events organisation brings in Adelaide and Sydney organisers under the CouchWarriors umbrella.
CouchWarriors has announced today it is broadening its brand to support esports events in the fighting game and Smash Bros communities of Adelaide and Smash Bros community in Sydney.
The request from these scenes to join the banner comes after a successful expansion into Brisbane last year, which saw events grow to an average of 160 attendees each month, and launch a successful national major, Sunny Side Up, with over 450 attendees.
Alongside, events in CouchWarriors home base in Melbourne also saw a big growth for the FGC. Over 1,500 unique competitors attended the national major, BAM (Battle Arena Melbourne) in May, and players across ANZ are participating in the BAM Path To EVO league, in which CouchWarriors sponsored three players to the largest worldwide tournament, EVO in Las Vegas.
Altogether, the Fighting Game esports scene is strong and healthy.
Now, Adelaide FGC and Smash, and Sydney Smash organisers will be working under the CouchWarriors banner to bring the winning formula to monthly events and add to the nationwide circuit of events.
