The American Red Cross recently unveiled it was partnering with Allied Esports to organize the inaugural Rescue Royale esports tournament and streaming event to support disaster relief. The event will be held from September 9th to October 16th, with donations going to the Red Cross Disaster Relief fund.
“Disasters impact a tremendous amount of people around the country every day and the American Red Cross is the first name you think of when it comes to helping people in need,” said Jud Hannigan, the CEO of Allied Esports. “As gaming and esports have gained mainstream popularity, especially since the onset of the pandemic, people have come to learn how incredibly aware and giving the gaming community can be. We are honored and excited to work with the Red Cross on this important initiative.”
The series will have individuals competing in the Rescue Royale Fall Guys Tournament. The top 20 players will win a free weekend trip to the HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas on October 16th. Gamers and streamers can also register for the event’s month-long “Stream-A-Thon” and fundraise on Tiltify.
