Belong Gaming Arenas have announced that Mortal Kombat II and Rocket League communities are joining Overwatch, League of Legends and FIFA 19 as part of this year’s Summer Arena Clash.
Players from all over the country can take part in the tournaments for the chance to win hardware, merchandise and more.
The Summer Arena Clash will be fought overall several weeks between Belong’s growing regional gaming tribes (like Stratford Spartans, Manchester Swarm and so on).
It will reach its peak with the finals playing out at Insomnia65 during the August bank holiday at the NEC Birmingham.
Players will compete in front of a live audience and experience playing on stage, with the winning tribe walking away with hundreds of pounds of reward points, hardware, peripherals and merchandise plus the coveted 2019 championship.
Qualifiers get underway during the week beginning May 27th.
To join your local tribe, visit this website and represent your region to face off against other arenas.

GAME last year named Player 1 Events as the event organisers behind the Insomnia Gaming Festival.
