If you’re thinking about registering for Clarksville’s first gaming convention, F2 Con, don’t wait, event organizers say.

Visit Clarksville, CDE Lightband, and Clarksville Parks and Recreation will host Tennessee’s newest gaming and esports convention, F2 Con, Friday and Saturday, April 27-28 at the Wilma Rudolph Event Center. Both casual and competitive play will take place Friday from 5:00-11:00 p.m. (doors open at 3:00 p.m.) and Saturday from 10:00 a.m.-11:00 p.m. (doors open at 9:00 a.m.) All gaming will take place on CDE Lightband’s gigabit internet.

“Each game allows a certain number of participants for bracket play, and availability on some of the more popular games is limited at this point,” says Visit Clarksville Executive Director Theresa Harrington. “Anyone can register at the door, but you might not be able to play any game at any time without advance registration.”

Admission for spectators is $5 per day online or $7 per day at the door. Online Registration for competitors is $20 for a 2-day pass with a pot bonus buy-in at $5. Door registration for competitors is $30 for a 2-day pass with a pot bonus buy-in at $5. Registration is live on the F2 Con website at https://smash.gg/f2con.

 The two-day event, produced by Esports Now, is uniquely designed to have something for everyone. The casual area offers spectators unlimited gameplay for a number of crowd favorites like Just Dance and Mario Party, not to mention retro consoles that take gamers back to the 80s. Spectators will also have access to vendors, the mainstage viewing area, and the official Red Bull Rise Gaming Lounge!

There will be tournament play for competitors of all skill levels. The 2-day pass allows entry into the Amateur Series Tournaments and Open Play events including Fortnite, Mario Kart 8, Minecraft, and Rocket League.

F2 Con will also have eight Featured Tournaments with a $10,000 pot bonus across various titles like Dragon Ball FighterZ, Call of Duty, Street Fighter V AE, SMASH Wii U, Madden NFL 18, and more.

The Wilma Rudolph Event Center is located in Liberty Park at 1190 TN-48. Parking will be available throughout the park.

The Riverview is the host hotel for the event and is offering a $94 rate with code F2CON.
