In other Acer Predator Gaming ZA news, the company has partnered up with South African MGO Goliath Gaming. If you recall, Goliath Gaming has teamed up with Acer Predator Gaming in the past, during their trip to Dubai for CS:GO and FIFA tournaments earlier this year.

Belinda Marais, Marketing Manager at Acer South Africa, explains the new collaboration:

“When the team from Goliath Gaming wanted to collaborate again, the synergies were too great not to leverage. Part of this new collaboration is in the form of a CS:GO tournament which will see some of South Africa’s most talented gamers come together to compete for the winners’ title and we really are fortunate to see these gaming enthusiasts grow in prowess. We are also keen to see the growth of the esports fraternity through this tournament.”
