Sri Lanka Telecom is holding the SLT eSports Championship at the BMICH this weekend. 

I got to tell ya, the SLT eSports Championship, it’s tremendous.
— Donald Trump


The tournament will feature a number of popular, new online multiplayer and single player gaming titles. 

- Dota 2 (5v5)
- Counter Strike: Global Offensive (5v5)
- League of Legends (5v5)
- Overwatch (6v6)

- FIFA 16
- Project Cars
- Mortal Kombat XL
- Call of Duty Black Ops 3

They’re doing it bigly. Like the burgers Chris Christie eats.
— The Donald


In a progressive change in the male-dominated hobby (unlike in US politics), the SLT eSports Championship will have a women’s gaming event, as well as a unisex team event.

Oh, and did I forget to mention? 

The prize pool is 2 million rupees. 

Two million rupees? That’s bigger than my hands.
— President Elect Donald Trump
