It has been revealed that the Red Bull Power Spike 1v1 winner on Saturday, 23 May will have the opportunity to face off against reigning 1v1 champion and Cloud9 Academy player Fudge.

Last month, Red Bull announced a partnership with Riot Games which involved running daily 1v1 League of Legends tournaments alongside Battlefy with a large selection of prizes for the winners. Now, they’re upping the ante with a chance to face off against a professional League of Legends player for whoever wins the 1v1 tournament on Saturday, 23 May.

Cloud9 Academy’s Ibrahim “Fudge” Allami announced yesterday that he would play an exhibition 1v1 match against the winner of this weekend’s tournament. After beating Cloud9’s Nisqy in the King of the Cloud tournament back in April, Fudge is the reigning Red Bull 1v1 champion.

To celebrate the conclusion of the Power Spike tournaments on Sunday, 24 May, and give Fudge a chance to defend (or lose) his title, Cloud9 have once again teamed up with their sponsors Red Bull to reward the winner of Saturday’s tournament with the exciting opportunity to face a pro player.

The Saturday, 23 May Red Bull Power Spike winner will contest C9’s Fudge.
