FAIRVIEW, Ala. – Fairview High School’s esports team will host a Super Smash Bros. Tournament fundraiser with Green Brothers Comics in Arab Saturday, July 8, starting at 1 p.m. The entry fee is $5, and participants can show up early to practice.

Fairview High School debuted its esports team earlier this year, with coaches David Brooks and Clay Morrison. The Smash Hits team earned a ranking of 35th out of 98 teams statewide, while the Low Riders team earned a ranking of 10th in the U.S. Central Region out of 150 teams.

The Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) recognizes esports as a legitimate high school sport, and students who compete are held to the same standards as those who participate in traditional sports.

Brooks said he is excited for the fundraiser and invites anyone to come and participate.

“Whether you’re a seasoned Smash Brothers pro or just enjoy some friendly competition, this tournament is for you,” he said. “Not only will you have a blast engaging in intense gaming action, but your participation will also support Fairview High School’s esports team. Show your support to a local small business and contribute to the growth of this exciting program.”

Brooks said there will be many prizes and donations to the prize pool are welcome.

Green Brothers Comics is located at 585 North Brindlee Mountain Pkwy. in Arab.
