Popular esports organization 100 Thieves has announced that they will be hosting three 'Gamers for Equality' events across different titles in partnership with CashApp, starting with a League of Legends tournament on July 1, which will feature stars such as Yassuo, TfBlade, and more. Here's everything you'll need to tune in to the action.
The Los Angeles based esports team initially revealed their plans to host a weekly tournament series on Call of Duty's battle royale title, Warzone, in support of racial equality starting June 18.
However, a dispute between 100 Thieves and Activision over the tournament's sponsor led to the series being postponed, forcing them to reschedule the event on a different title.
They have since announced that the $100,000 raised for the Gamers for Equality series would be split across three separate events, on League of Legends, Valorant, and Fortnite.
When does the 100 Thieves LoL tournament start?
While the Gamers for Equality Series is set to span from July 1 to July 15, the 100 Thieves League of Legends tournament is up first.
Viewers will be able to tune in to the event, which will begin broadcasting at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET / 8 PM BST/ 9 PM CEST, on Wednesday, July 1.
