Clash Royale Super Magical Cup Tournament Details Announced

Clash Royale Super Magical Cup at SXSW Gaming 2018

Clash Royale is taking over the SXSW Gaming Tournament Stage on March 16 & 17 with two unique events: the Super Magical Cup: Kings of the Hill and Super Magical Cup: Open Play, each taking a full day of the stage – and each exciting day of competition will be livestreamed around the world.

Like all of our featured esports programing on the tournament stage, both days of the Super Magical Cup are powered by SXSW Gaming 2018’s Tournament Stage production partner, Next Generation Esports (NGE) with and RAZER as key event sponsors.

Both of these events follow the recent announcement of Supercell’s new professional team-based league for Clash Royale, and are certain to attract hopeful Clash Royale amateurs, who will be vying to get the attention of the pro teams!

To that end, the two tournaments we’ve put together for SXSW Gaming have two focuses: one for existing pro teams, and the other, for solo competitors.
