South African Esports
South African esports has a short but vivid history with a quick rise in prominence over the last 5 to 8 years. The last two years has seen Orena send local talent overseas to compete on international shores, this year we see over R6 million being offered in major events countrywide.
South African esports is entering a new era in 2017 and we are thrilled to be a part of the movement as we bring "Orena Fight Nights" to South Africa this year!
