Competitive Halo is returning to the Northeast! UGC has announced the Halo Classic: Atlantic City taking place from September 6th through 8th at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Back in January, we made history by putting together the largest classic Halo LAN in almost a decade. Now, we’re ready to do it again.

From the snow-blanketed streets of St. Louis to the warm, sunny beaches of Atlantic City – we’re delighted to bring you the Halo Classic at Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel & Casino through the weekend of September 6th.

Earlier this year, the superteam of TOX raised the prestigious Halo Classic 4v4 trophy above their heads after Denial’s thrilling run through the lower bracket. Almost six months later, in partnership with HCS Grassroots and Caesars Palace, we’ll furnish yet another competitive background for oldschool Halo competitors and newcomers alike to skirmish through the most distinguished tournament in modern Halo.

The event will feature an open, double-elimination Halo 3 4v4 tournament yielding a $50,000 prize pool.

Tickets are on sale now. Spectator passes are $40 for three day access or $100 for a VIP pass which includes three day access plus premium seating, access to the VIP lounge, a custom metal badge, and VIP merch pack.
