Samsung Open Tournament Series commences April 24
Samsung has announced that the first Open Tournament Series will take place on April 24. Amateurs will compete in the popular esports title League of Legends but fan-voted games will also be added to the mix throughout the monthly tournaments.
Sweepstakes and promotions were also mentioned in the announcement, though no exact details were revealed and it’s unclear if viewers will also have an opportunity to win prizes. According to the company, Samsung products will be given as prizes to participants as part of the several promotions planned to take place throughout 2021.
