Comic Con Africa is teaming up with Doritos for the Doritos Crunch Cup coming to this year’s event. The cup will be a series of free-to-play tournaments that will all take place at the Doritos Crunch Zone. Each day at Comic Con Africa 2022, there will be a new game to compete in, including Fortnite, Tekken 7, Street Fighter V and FIFA 22.
As part of Doritos’ ongoing commitment to the South African gaming scene, this tournament follows the Doritos Crunch Cup Fortnite series of online tournaments which took place earlier this year. Each day will feature a new game to compete in at Comic Con Africa 2022 with a cash prize of R4000 up for grabs every day. All tournaments will be 1v1, played on PlayStation 4 consoles, and will be in single elimination format.

Comic Con Africa 2022 show director, Carla Massmann, had this to say:
“After the success of the Doritos Crunch Cup online Tournament earlier this year, we are super excited to be partnering with Doritos once again, but this time bringing it IRL to this year’s festival. The best part is that this will be open to all with something for every gamer, from casual to avid, which really adds to the gaming offering for the show, giving an opportunity for all gamers to show off their skills while having fun!”
