eSports Charity Event by Sony

eSports charity event hosted by the eSports Giant ESL. ESL partnered up to host the tournament Gaming4Life Call of Duty Charity, together with the Sony Foundation.

The Call of Duty eSports charity event will be played in Australia, where you find players compete to raise funds. The eSports charity will go to ‘You Can‘, a initiative by Sony Foundation, which builds specialised youth centers for patients with cancer aged between 15-25.

“This is our third year hosting a Gaming4Life Charity Tournament and we are always so humbled by the generosity and empathy of the gaming community. We hope this tournament in partnership with Activision, ESL and Sony PlayStation raises over $70,000 to help teenagers and young adults with cancer who are sadly falling through a gap in our health system.”

“Funds raised will enable more You Can Centres for specialised care and supports services for this age group in hospitals around Australia. We’re really excited to see the Call of Duty community come together to have some fun and help make a change in the lives of young Australians”, said Sophie Ryan, CEO at Sony Foundation Australia.

The qualifiers will be hosted over three weeks. The top seven teams, together with the team that has raised the most funds – will proceed to an online finals event on July 6th. CoD Team Mindfreak, who won the Open bracket CWL London and CWL Anaheim will also compete in the finals. The teams will fight for $40,000 worth of hardware, games, and merchandise.

“Gaming4Life is a fantastic initiative for us to be a part of, and one that the whole team at ESL is passionate about. We’re excited to show what the Call of Duty esports community can do together in support of a great cause.” said Josh Inman, Operations Manager at ESL Australia
