#GamersVSCovid, a charity streamathon in support of Direct Relief’s Covid-19 Fund for Community Health, kicks off this Sunday, April 26th with free-to-enter, donation-encouraged tournaments featuring Fortnite hosted by Team SoloMid’s ZexRow and Reverse2k, YouTube sensation Michelle Phan, former NBA pro Nate Robinson, and other fan-favourite content creators.
The 12-hour streamathon will be hosted by ScrimToWin, the esports tournament platform designed for creators and gamers alike, to easily connect in bracket-style tournaments. In collaboration with Logitech G, Razer, and Streamlabs, ScrimToWin’s #GamersVSCovid features dozens of fan-favourite content creators and pro gamers hosting tournaments anyone can join.
#GamersVSCovid invites anyone to enter these free creator qualifiers and pledge their support for the cause by making a donation for Direct Relief. From each of these creator qualifiers, a winner will emerge and go on to compete in the finals for the grand prize.
The action kicks off at 8:00 a.m. PST / 15:00 p.m. GMT, with featured creators being highlighted each hour of the event. Throughout the day, the community will have a shot at stellar prizes from sponsors Logitech G and Razer, including state-of-the-art gaming computers, keyboards, and signed jerseys and mousepads. Prizes will be awarded to those tuning into ScrimToWin on Twitch.
