The competition began in August with more than 27 million players, but this December, only one will remain. The Crown Championship, Clash Royale's first-ever official global eSports competition designed to find the best player in the world, will culminate at former London 2012 Olympic venue, the Copper Box Arena on December 3rd. Fans who want to attend the thrilling day-long competition in person and receive rare collectible giveaways can get tickets now.
Sure, the Crown Championship is billed as Mobile eSports' biggest tourney, but there isn't much competition for that title… yet. That said, Clash Royale is one of the biggest competitive mobile games available.
During the full-day Crown Championship event, which will be broadcast live for viewers at home on YouTube and Twitch, the best 16 Clash Royale players in the world will compete for the Golden Crown, a cash prize, and their spot in Clash Royale history. Competitors will fight for their share of this year's $1 million prize pool, with $400,000 up for grabs at the Crown Championship. $150,000 of that will go to the first place winner.

Since Clash Royale's beta phase, players have been looking for ways to take the game's competitive elements to the next level. The Crown Championship is Supercell's first step in supporting Clash Royale's burgeoning eSports scene. The enormous participation in the Crown Championship has proven the appetite for a competitive landscape. Both Clash Royale's community and Supercell are dedicated to seeing Mobile eSports actually become noteworthy, and depending on how the Crown Championship goes, that may just see that dream come true.
