Combat Gaming and 38 Entertainment Group are planning something big, as they are contemplating the chance of hosting four different charity events with four different gaming titles, with the first one amongst them being Fortnite.
38 Entertainment group, the co-owners of the famous eSports group named Ellevens Esports, only launched Combat Gaming last year, as a brand new eSports membership club and gaming collective. In 2020, Combat Gaming successfully pulled off a variety of charity gaming tournaments and events, including the revolutionary event “Combat Corona”, which was formed to raise sufficient funds to help the ones suffering from the diverse effects of the global pandemic.
The initial two tournaments of Combat’s eSports timeline featured a host of celebrity entities competing against each other in the titles Call of Duty: Warzone and FIFA 20. The tournament successfully raised more than $25,000 (or more than £18,231 approx.) for the UN subsidiary UNICEF.
The other biggest attractions of the upcoming Fortnite event or tournament include:
- Mason Mount (Footballer),
- John ‘Manny’ Brown (Gaming Content Editor),
- Jaden ‘Wolfiez’ Ashman (British Fortnite Player), and
- Manuel Lanzini (Footballer), among many others.
