NVGO 2 – The Northview Video Game Olympics

NVGO, (Northview Video Game Olympics), is a fundraiser for the Northview Band Boosters. The event will consist of a variety of tournaments for different video games. Participants are allowed to enter up to two different tournaments. Each participant is a cost of $10, meaning Rocket League 2v2 is $20 per team, Overwatch 3v3 is $30 per team, and Fortnite 2v2 is $20 per team.

The event will take place over two days during the evening hours of Thursday April 21 and Friday April 22. Preliminary rounds will take place in the Northview High School Cafeteria on Thursday, and the quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals will take place on Friday in the auditorium, projected on the big screen for the audience to see, (due to technical issues, the 2v2 and 3v3 tournaments may or may not be projected on the big screen). Admission for audience members is free on Thursday. Friday’s main events in the auditorium will be a suggested $3 donation for attendees wanting to watch.

We ask that all participants bring their own controller for games on Switch, (Smash and Mario Kart). A controller will be provided for the Tecmo Super Bowl tournament.

Fortnite, Rocket League, and Overwatch will have a selection of consoles available for use, however, most players will likely want to bring in their own setups for these games. If you plan to enter one of these tournaments, please use this link to help us plan accordingly for scheduling matches: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdsGI50fLFGNiXzCGor3SJWXCWohgGZxw6_yvaSrB4skWEluQ/viewform?usp=sf_link

1st – 3rd place finishers will be honored in a medal ceremony at the end of the event. All participants will receive an official NVGO shirt.
