Excel Esports Launches A Fortnite Tournament To Raise Money For Charity
Excel Esports has launched a Fortnite tournament in conjunction with HyperX and Beyond NRG to raise money for charity.
The tournament, named the XL Community Cup, will be a one-day event held on Sunday, November 28. There will be a whole host of professional, amateur, and influencer Fortnite talent at the event, including UK TikToker, Ollie Ball, streamer and influencer, TurntDaisy, professional Rugby Union player, Luke Cowan-Dickie, and Fortnite pro, Archie King.
The charity they're supporting, SpecialEffect, specialises in helping physically challenged people to enjoy video games. The charity also collaborates with game studios to make their games more accessible.
CEO of Excel Esports, Wouter Sleijffers, said: "At EXCEL ESPORTS we aspire to build better communities and include every gaming enthusiast in our journey. We are proud to announce the launch of the XL Community Cup. Working closely with HyperX and Beyond NRG, we all share similar beliefs and values in supporting UK gamers and the Fortnite community, and I look forward to seeing similar tournaments being created to help support this ongoing effort."
HyperX’s Head of Global Gaming Partnerships, Jessany Van’t Hoff, added: "HyperX continues to elevate UK gamers in achieving their ambitions with the support of our top-quality gaming gear. The XL Community Cup not only enables the Fortnite community to highlight growing talent but encourages the next generation of esports pros. It is also a core value at HyperX to champion the good in gaming and by supporting a great charity such as Special Effect, who support our ethos that We’re All Gamers, regardless of abilities."
