For the 11th consecutive year in a row, the Namibian Electronic Sports Association (NESA) hosted NamLAN – LAN of the Brave, Namibia’s biggest annual LAN event.

During the weekend of the 29th November to the 2nd of December, Namibian gaming fans were able to compete for cash prizes to the value of N$ 30 000 in the game titles FIFA18 and Tekken 7 on PlayStation4, and League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on PC. Participants could also test their driving skills on the ever-popular racing simulator, Assetto Corsa.

The action took place at the UNAM Gym Hall in Windhoek which was a hive of activities as professional gamers in the country and beginners alike came together for this annual eSports festival.
