A new charity Mid-Season Streamathon will see League of Legends esports communities from around the world come together to raise money for COVID-19 relief.
Announced by Riot Games in a blog post, the charity stream will play host to special exhibition matches and competitions between leagues across an entire weekend.
Promised events include a continental battle between teams in Europe, an influencer battle between Yoda and Kami in Brazil, and a Mid-Season Cup showdown between the top teams in the LCK and LPL.
Donations from the stream will be donated to nonprofit organisations supporting COVID-19 relief efforts, including the ImpactAssets COVID Response Fund and GlobalGiving Coronavirus Relief Fund.
