Extra Life United goes virtual | Sign up + unlock $150,000 for children’s hospitals

Now, more than ever, your local children’s hospital needs support.

We are proud to be converting Extra Life United to an online experience – Extra Life United: Online Edition. We have huge plans to spread joy and raise life-saving funds with our virtual tournament. Your local children’s hospital is a beacon of healing and hope to vulnerable children in your community. Your hospital needs gamers like you.

To help, follow these three steps:

STEP 1 | Sign Up

Sign up for Extra Life United: Online Edition today!  We’ve created a new website specifically for Extra Life United where everyone needs to create a page. (Please do this even if you previously registered for the Orlando IRL event).


Bonus Points: If you host an Extra Life United charity stream, we have exclusive fundraising incentives only available until Apr 12! Raise as little as $62 USD on your page to unlock free swag!


STEP 2 | Register for the Tournament

Register for the virtual tournament (registration link will be emailed to you after you sign up). If you registered for our original IRL tournament, your registration has transferred over, but games have changed so login to update your games. (We’re refunding your IRL registration funds.)

We’re offering new games and created an updated site to accommodate more participants. You can compete in the following games:

  • Lethal League Blaze
  • Magic the Gathering Arena
  • Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid
  • Puyo Puyo Champions
  • Rocket League
  • Splendor
  • Uno

During these challenging times we want everyone to have the chance to compete and unlock funds from our $150,000 USD prize pool for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which is why the tournament is free. But if you want to donate $10 to your page, we won’t stand in your way!


 STEP 3 | Spread the Word

There are millions of gamers #StayingHomeFor those they love most during this global pandemic. If they only knew that they could harness their gaming passion to help support local hospitals, we know many people would rise to the occasion.

Get the word out!

  • Announce the Extra Life United: Online Edition on social media with these graphics, inviting others to join
  • Ask your community to donate to your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital
  • If you want to stream a gaming marathon between April 7-9, start planning your stream (keep an eye out, broadcast overlays coming soon)


To summarize, even if you previously signed up for Extra Life United, we need you to take action to transfer over to Extra Life United: Online Edition.

  1. Sign up online
  2. Register for your tournament games (check your email for the link)
  3. Boldly get the word out; magnify our ability to support local hospitals when they most need it.
