Celebrate Canadian Gaming This Weekend During Red Bull AdrenaLAN

by Gary Catig

Red Bull AdrenaLAN is an annual event that celebrates both Canadian gaming and the world of the popular energy drink. Like many others, this year’s installment will be held virtually. Though you can’t experience the excitement in person, the online nature provides people not residing in the country to participate for the first time.

Included in the schedule of Red Bull AdrenaLAN, which is set to take place this weekend, are two headlining eSports competitions. The first is the Cloud9 ‘To the Skies’ Valorant invitational that will include such popular teams as T1, Renegades, Complexity, Envy, FaZe, and more facing off for a $25,000 prize pool. It will take place on both days, Dec. 19 and 20, at 4:00 pm ET/1:00 pm PT. It can be streamed on the Cloud9 Twitch channel: Twitch.tv/Cloud9.

The other is FallMania 7 hosted by GrandPooBear. It’s a Fall Guys tournament with sixteen Canadian streamers battling for the $5,000 grand prize. It will take place on Dec. 19 at 5:00 pm ET/2:00 PM PT on GrandPooBear’s Twitch Channel: Twitch.tv/GrandPOOBear.
