Nigma Galaxy has announced a League of Legends (LoL) tournament for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

The competition dubbed ‘Rising Stars’ is said to be a spiritual successor to the esports organisation’s previous Dota 2 event that took place back in 2020 under the same name.

Nigma Galaxy has partnered with Etihad Airways and ADGaming for the new Rising Stars tournament which will be open to all teams from the MENA region and will see them battle it out for a prize pool of $20,000.

Nigma Galaxy is an esports organisation that was founded through the merger of Team Nigma, a known esports organisation from Abu-Dhabi, and Galaxy Racer.

After the merger, the organisation continued operating as a separate entity tasked with spearheading Galaxy Racer’s esports division.

Speaking about the upcoming tournament Co-Founder of Nigma Galaxy, Mohamed Morad, stated that the Rising Stars will be an amazing opportunity for LoL players in the region.

“We’re delighted to announce the Rising Stars tournament as an amazing new opportunity for League of Legends teams in MENA.”

“With more talent continually emerging across the region, we want to be able to put them in the spotlight and help the ecosystem grow even more.

Fellow Co-Founder of Nigma Galaxy, Christoph Timm, also shared his thoughts stating “It’s going to be great to watch regional League talent go head-to-head for the top prize pools, and we can’t wait to see which stars of the future shine brightest and put themselves on the map.”

The Rising Stars tournament will be open for players from Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, UAE, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Bahrain, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Oman, Palestine and Qatar. Registrations open on April 28th, and the finals are set to be played on May 19th.
