BoomTV are set to host another of their Code Red tournaments for Apex Legends on March 9 as some of the best streamers and players will do battle for a slice of the $50,000 prize pool.
While there is a competitive scene for Apex Legends esports, many of the high profile tournaments have come through organizers like BoomTV and their Code Red events.
These events pit content creators against others in a few matches of the battle royale, with a pretty nice prize pool usually on the line. Their March 9 event is set to be no different as 20 teams will hop into the World’s Edge map and look to claim the $15,000 first-place prize. So, here’s everything you need to know about the tournament.
What are the teams for the March 9 Code Red Apex Legends tournament?
As already mentioned, 20 teams of three players will be contesting the March 9 Code Red event. These teams vary in strength and backgrounds – with streamers from both Twitch and Mixer partnering with YouTubers, though not all the streamers are full focused on shooter games.
The standout line-up comes in the form of Dr Disrespect, Shroud, and Bnans. The Doc and Shroud have always been a fierce duo when they’ve teamed up together, and that should be no different here.
There are also notable trios like LuluLuvely’s team, as she partners with Snipedown and Crowder. There is also Skadoodle’s team – featuring himself, Seagull, and syncedez – and even Nicewigg’s line-up that will see him team up with Daltoosh and Jonny.

When does the March 9 Code Red Apex Legends event start?
The event is set to kick off on March 9 at 1 pm PST/4 pm EST/8 pm GMT/9 pm CET. Though, with this being an online event, there could be a few technical delays so it is worth keeping that in mind.
What is the format?
The teams will compete in six rounds of custom matches, with the objective being more about racking up kills than becoming Apex Champions.
