Twitch announces a $200k charity event
128 invited streamers will raise money
Chicken Dinners for charity! Don’t miss the $200K Twitch PUBG Winter Charity Invitational
We got out our favorite frying pan, oiled it up real good, and cooked up a tasty tournament for a great cause! On December 5th starting at 10am PT, 64 teams from North America and Europe will compete in a $200K charity tournament playing PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS (ya know, PUBG). That’s right — $200,000 — for charity as Twitch and PUBG Corporation combine forces with each company putting up $100,000 for great causes!
Who’s playing you ask? Well, how about BdoubleO, Djarii, LIRIK, SheriffEli, shroud, summit1g, WELOVEGAMES, and many many many more of your favorite streamers. The top 3 winners of this tournament will have an opportunity to select a charity to receive a donation from Twitch in the participant’s name. A large contribution will also be made directly to Gamers Outreach, who provide kids in hospitals with recreation and therapy through the power of video games.
Each region will pit 32 duos against each other in five matches, starting with the EU bracket at 10am PT, followed by the NA bracket at 2pm PT. You can catch the match on any of the participant’s channels, as well as the main /playBATTLEGROUNDS Twitch channel with commentary by Matt “Matrym” Oates and Steve “Toffees” Pierce.
