KFC Gaming is continuing to make a name for itself in the esports space with the announcement of their Black Ops 4 Blackout tournament in partnership with Call of Duty UK.
While there have been plenty of Fortnite tournaments, both official and unofficial, over the last year, Black Ops 4's Blackout hasn’t seen as many major tournaments pop up during the first three months of release.
That all looks to change with the announcement of KFC Gaming and Call of Duty UK’s Blackout tournament, with a special twist.
With most major tournaments feature a host of professional talent, this new joint venture will see 16 of the UK’s biggest content creators compete alongside fans with £50,000 up for grabs.
While the tournament was officially unveiled on January 14 after days of teasing, we now know the 16 content creators who will be competing during the event.
Featuring everyone from the likes of popular YouTuber Syndicate to reality TV star Gaz Beadle, who has been playing plenty of Blackout over the last few months, there should be plenty of interest from UK fans looking to get into the tournament.
