Play One Up Launches Tournament Partner Program

Esports competition app Play One Up has come forward to give anyone who wants to run their own esports tournament a chance to do so with its new Tournament Partner Program. This program gives aspiring hosts the tools to run an esports tournament.

To get started, those wanting to be tournament organizers will pay a $599 USD start-up fee that then allows the use of an application where tournaments can be set up using the Play One Up app. After players or others pay fees associated with individual tournaments, Play One Up receives 15% of the total money involved and organizers get 30% of those registration fees. That leaves the remaining 55% for participants.
