Riot Games have announced the Mid-Season Streamathon: a League of Legends streaming marathon to raise funds and assist relief agencies in the fight against Covid19.
The event will take place over several days and will involve gamers all over the world, thus guaranteeing widespread coverage of the streams and the continuous involvement of the millions of LoL fans.
The League of Legends Mid-Season Streamathon will run from 30 May to 1 June and will be supported by partners such as State Farm, Red Bull, Secretlab and Mastercard. The 48 hours of programming scheduled for streming will also include intense continental battles between teams. There will also be MOBA battles between the best LPL and LCK teams to decide the absolute winner of the Mid-Season Cup.
Throughout the event, League of Legends fans will be able to make donations to support the global network of non-profit organizations that are facing the global emergency of the COVID-19 pandemic. The donations will flow into the Riot Games Social Impact Fund and then be redistributed among all the charities connected to the initiative of the American gaming giant which, to date, has already donated a total of 4.5 million dollars for the Coronavirus emergency.
