If we can't have LAN tournaments, just make them online: From March 20-26, WePlay! Esports organises an online charity marathon dedicated to fight COVID-19 – top teams and top talent included. The tournament organiser announced their charity event on Monday. All earnings from the marathon will be donated to a non-profit organisation in order to fight the coronavirus. This includes the $120,000 prize pool, as well as all money from sponsors and viewers. WePlay! will later reveal which organisation will receive the funds.

24 teams will play at the Charity Play, four teams from each region. So far, not all of the participants have been set, but 15 of them are already confirmed.

Currently confirmed participants

The talent

The Charity Play will be accompanied by three different official casts, the English, Russian, and Ukrainian. The talent list is quite extensive and features names such as Sheever, ODPixel, Kyle, Lacoste, syndereN and SUNSfan. Pro player Danil 'Dendi' Ishutin and Ilya 'Lil' Ilyuk join the Russian talent among others.

More information about the tournament and the remaining participants will be revealed soon. The English stream can be found here.
