Galaxy Racer NA to host HER Galaxy $100K Apex Legends Open

At Galaxy Racer North America, through our HER Galaxy initiative and Tournament series, we are striving to end the immense gender disparity in the gaming world. As part of our efforts, we’re absolutely thrilled to be kicking off our HER Galaxy $100K Apex Legends Open later this month, offering the largest prize pool ever for a women’s Apex Legends tournament. The HER Galaxy tournament showcases both Galaxy Racer and EA’s support and commitment to building a more inclusive gaming industry. As a testament to this commitment, Apex Legends donated $40k to HER Galaxy’s recent Charity Creator Cup. 


“Apex Legends was built with diversity and representation in mind, and we’re committed to fostering that same philosophy through competitive gaming,” said John Nelson, Sr. Director & Commissioner, Apex Legends Esports, Electronic Arts. We’re proud to support Galaxy Racer as we work together to create opportunities that elevate women in our global Apex Legends community.”


HER Galaxy creates new opportunities for women-identifying gamers to compete at the highest levels in an inclusive and welcoming environment, while earning the recognition, prize money and sponsorship that can inspire change across the industry. We are all in on our commitment to providing amateur creators with new opportunities to compete, and delivering value-add education and networking to support our creators on the path from amateur to pro.


The HER Galaxy Tournament Series provides meaningful, competitive opportunities for gamers who identify as women. With seven events in 2023, a combined prize pool of $250K and 8 days of broadcasts, the HER Galaxy Tournament Series is the first-ever large scale tournament series exclusively for women gamers to compete at the highest levels and shine in the spotlight. Over the first two tournament streams of the series, the competitions garnered 400K total live views with peak concurrent viewership between the two at 8.6K.


We are so grateful for the support and passion around the initiative from the gaming community and our friends at EA. If you’re a woman gamer in North America, the HER Galaxy $100K Apex Legends Open is still open for registration and currently has over over 330 registrants.
