The competitive Tekken community will descend upon London’s Heart of Gaming venue on Saturday February 24th to see the District G WAR champion emerge.
The winner, who will take the Pro League title, will also walk away with the lion’s share of the £1,000 prize pot, sponsored by Gamestatix.
UK fighting game org District G (which previously had UK Tekken player KingJae within their ranks) is also planning on launching a campaign to get more women into Tekken esports/the fighting game community (FGC), with more details to be announced soon.
The current WAR III: The Pro League tournament follows a six-month-long campaign.
“Heart of Gaming is an incredible venue. With a live DJ, free giveaways, special guests and plenty of free play, it’s set to be our best event yet.”

After two qualifying rounds, with the likes of Roo Kang, Haroun, Bonus Jin and Asim securing their seats at the pro league table, the third instalment of WAR promises to feature plenty of top gameplay and emerging talent from the Tekken 7 eSports community.
District G team CEO Joe Nwasokwa said: “Not only have we seen some incredible play from the top players, we have also attracted so many new faces. We are really excited to see who will take the title home – it’s almost impossible to call.
“Heart of Gaming is an incredible venue, it’s a gamer’s paradise, mixing retro and modern, coupled with a live DJ, free giveaways, special surprise guests and plenty of free play, it’s set to be our best event yet.”
The event will also be livestreamed for the first time.
