The arrival of the Coronavirus has caused representatives of different communities, be they artists, athletes or businessmen, to unite to combat this pandemic. And the video game industry is no exception. Since now the ChamPlay will allow donations with cryptocurrencies to fight against COVID-19.
In the midst of this situation, where the best measure is social distancing, most sporting events have been canceled. That is why athletes Paulo Dybala and Diego Schwartzman devised a way for sports fans to have a unique event with their favorite stars from the comfort of their home.
And it’s not just to help fans get through a more enjoyable quarantine. Rather, the real goal of this event is to raise funds to donate to the Argentine Red Cross. Everything to continue fighting the Coronavirus within the country.
The ChamPlay: FIFA vs. Coronavirus
This event is called World Challenge of Solidarity Play “ChamPlay”. It is a tournament of the famous game FIFA20, which will be played between April 18 and 19.
The ChamPlay will be broadcast through various platforms, such as TyC Sports, DirecTV Sports, Twich and Facebook Live. This in order that fans, both soccer and FIFA can access from their favorite platform and enjoy the tournament.
And this is not the best part. The participants of the ChamPlay will be nothing more and nothing less than great celebrities of Latin American soccer. These include Sergio Kun Agüero, James Rodríguez and Facu Campazzo among others.
Everyone will be playing from home, broadcasting live and inviting the public to collaborate with donations so that, in this match against the Coronavirus, humanity ends up winning “by a landslide.”
