The OKC Blue are teaming up with Extra Life and hosting the 1UP Open at the Blue game on Saturday, February 29th. We will have four Esports tournaments going on that day. The titles included will be Super Smash Ultimate, Rocket League, NBA 2K 2020, Tekken 7, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Fortnite.

During the event, catch some hoops at the Cox Convention Center against the Iowa Wolves. The game will start at 7 P.M. with Esports festivities lasting all day starting at 9 A.M. We will have prize pools up to $1,500 for all tournaments being played, raffles with special prizes, College Esports scouts in attendance and custom gaming jerseys for all the winners! The 1UP Open will feature vendors, Esports tournaments, cosplayers and some OKC Blue basketball!

A portion of the proceeds will go to Extra Life, a Children’s Miracle Network program where gamers PLAY GAMES to raise money for their local children’s hospitals to SAVE LIVES. These donations will go to the Children’s Hospital Foundation so they can continue the research for cures/better treatments and to make sure no child in Oklahoma is turned away because of the inability to pay for treatments.

Early registration is now closed for the 1UP Extra Life. Day of registration is however accepted at the event, Saturday between the hours of 9:00am and 10:50am with tournament play beginning promptly at 11:00am. Registration will be located on the south side of the Cox Convention Center arena. Signs and volunteers will be on hand to direct participants and observers. For any questions please reach out to Joseph Absher at jabsher@okcthunder.com.
