We here at SKL are so excited that Smashfest, in partnership with IKS Media, the West Edmonton Mall, London Drugs, Hyper X, and Redbull, is coming up right around the corner! As it approaches, here is some information on the events that will be taking place at the West Edmonton Mall on October 20th, as well as what you can do to prepare for this awesome event.

We are unable to accept registrations at the venue on the day of the tournament. You can also only enter three out of four events (Smash 4 Singles, Smash 4 Doubles, Smash Melee Singles and Smash Melee Doubles), in order to prevent disruption of the flow of the event.

After Smashfest at the West Edmonton Mall, SKL will be hosting an Official After Party, with details to come in the next week! The event will be held at the mall as well, so you won’t even have to leave the venue to come party with your favourite players and casters! This will be another opportunity to get discounted drinks, using your SKL Player Cards, which you receive for participating in any SKL events, including this Smashfest!

While we will likely continue support of Super Smash Brothers Melee, this will be our farewell tournament to Super Smash Brothers for the Wii U. Therefore, we are incredibly excited to announce our first Super Smash Brothers Ultimate tournament coming up in January! That’s right, we will be starting a brand-new Super Smash Brothers circuit in 2019 with Smash Ultimate, and our first flagship event will be held at the Sasktel Centre in Saskatoon.

One Up

Hello everyone!

Unfortunately, SKL will be postponing Smashfest 3, which was to be held in Regina from June 2nd, 2018, until October 20, 2018. This is not something to be disappointed about, however. SKL is going into a new frontier, as we are expanding past our Saskatchewan borders and bringing to everyone an event held at one of the most iconic venues in Alberta.

Welcome to SKL Smashfest: West Edmonton Mall.

That’s right, SKL will be hosting our iconic Super Smash Brothers tournament on the Newcap Radio stage at the West. Edmonton. Mall. This will be online pre-registration only and spots WILL fill up so make sure to sign up as soon as you can. For those of you who have already registered for SKL 3, if you would like to use that registration towards Smashfest WEM, congratulations! You are already signed up for one of the biggest Smash Bros tournaments in Western Canada.

Further details regarding the event, prizing and registration details will come in the coming weeks, but we are super excited to be expanding into Alberta. For fans of our other esports, take note. SKL is no longer just Saskatchewan Esports.

Western Canada…We are coming.
