Elite LAN Announces Tournament

NEW CITY, New York – Shortly after the creation of their LAN center in New York, Elite LAN has announced their first trial tournament featuring at least $1800 in prizes.

Elite LAN, a new LAN center in New York and described by many as the new big LAN for the northeast part of the country, has announced an ambitious starter tournament which will have over $1800 dollars in prize money.

The tournament currently plans to have 16 teams max, but if more register, there will be more slots available.

The event will take place on August 22-23 and the price will be $40 dollars a person prepaid or $50 dollars a person at the door.

The event will start with group play on Day One and a double elimination bracket on Day Two.
