What are the Orena Fight Nights (OFN)?

The OFN, established by Orena in 2017, with the inaugural event being hosted at Rush Expo, is an event series that serves as the ultimate experience for fighting game competitors and fans from around the country.

The event offers various experiences, ranging from live performances, to exclusive fan meetings with the attending fighters, a rad fan zone with endless refreshments powered by Red Bull, as well as an official expo area which will include the Orena store where you can purchase merchandise relating to your favourite games, players, hardware, as well as other esports and gaming related goodies.

Orena Fight Nights are a bi-monthly esports competition that will run over a four month period, culminating in a Championship Weekend where massive cash prizes will be on offer. This year, OFN will run from the 21st of July with our bi-monthly Fight Nights Emperors Palace, followed by the Prelim Championships at Rush Expo, running from 21-23 July, and Championship Weekend at Emperors Palace running from 27th to 29th October.


Emperor's Palace

We have partnered with the perfect location for the Orena Fight Nights, one worthy of Caesar himself!

The OFN bi-weekly tournaments as-well as Finals Weekend will take place in the Nu Metro Arena at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg, South Africa.


Why Emperor's Palace?

The hotel and casino will be the venue for the OFN Finals 2017. It is one of the largest single hotel complexes in South Africa, as well as one of the largest gaming floors on the African continent providing premium venue space for this year's event.

Accommodation, catering and all the entertainment one could ask for in one glorious venue.

The official stage will be housed inside a 500-seater cinema complex powered by Nu Metro!


A Special Viewer Experience

The Nu Metro Arena is a massive 500-seater cinema and will play host to the stage matches for the entirety of the OFN Championship weekend Finals. The auditorium is fitted with a massive screen, professional grade acoustics and some insanely comfy seating to boot!

Tickets to watch the event live in the Arena are available here


South African Esports

South African esports has a short but vivid history with a quick rise in prominence over the last 5 to 8 years. The last two years has seen Orena send local talent overseas to compete on international shores, this year we see over R6 million being offered in major events countrywide.

South African esports is entering a new era in 2017 and we are thrilled to be a part of the movement as we bring Orena Fight Nights to South Africa this year!
