A Powerful Partnership

This Skillz mobile esport tournament is a part of their Gaming for Good initiative.

Events may not appear in-app for up to 2 hours following game installation. 100% of the net proceeds of this event will be donated. Net proceeds are calculated as entry fees, less prizes and tournament administration costs. A minimum of 25% of total tournament entry fees collected will be donated. Prizes may vary in select games and will be ordered within 2 weeks of the event ending. Due to the current global crisis, some prizes may take longer to arrive than usual. Participation prizes may take 8 weeks or longer to receive.
