FORCECON will take place over Memorial Day weekend at the new Tech Port Center + Arena, and ASM Global managed facility located in San Antonio, Texas., and features three live esports competitions with the Armed Forces Sports Championship on May 28. This free-to-attend, one-day double-elimination tournament for Halo: Infinite is the United States’ first-ever federally sanctioned and recognized esports competition. Teams from each branch are set to face-off, including:

US Army Esports

Marine Corps Gaming

Navy Esports

Air Force Gaming

Space Force Gaming

Coast Guard Gaming

FORCECON is hosted by Port San Antonio and ASM Global at the new Tech Port Center + Arena, the most advanced innovation and esports event center in Texas. The inaugural event includes two more esports competitions including the $10K Halo Showdown and Air Force Gaming Minor League Championships on Sunday, May 29.

The $10K Halo Showdown is powered by Rally Cry, a technology company programming organized gaming for players of all ages and skill levels, and gives attendees the opportunity to purchase a team pass to compete in the open-to-all competition and earn championship glory before a live and livestreamed audience on Twitch and Youtube.

Finalists from the Air Force Gaming Minor League spring season will compete live on stream in Rocket League and Fortnite.

"There isn’t a better vehicle to make esports history than through the official Armed Forces Sports programming and as host of the first ever federally recognized esports sporting event,” US Air Force Captain Oliver Parsons said. “The collaboration between the Dept of the Air Force's gaming tech & esports event provider, Rally Cry, the game changing venue, Tech Port Center + Arena, the world-class supporter & military advocate, Space Force Association, and the unity between every US military branch is going to make for a meaningful and memorable event.”
