Popular esports and lifestyle brand 100 Thieves is hosting three Gamers for Equality events across different competitive titles.
In partnership with
Square Inc (NYSE: SQ)-owned CashApp, the organization is kicking off the event with a "League of Legends" tournament starting July 1.
The team initially hoped to kick off a weekly tournament series through "Call of Duty: Warzone" on June 18, but a dispute between 100 Thieves and Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI) forced the series to be postponed.
Matt "Nadeshot" Haag, the CEO of 100 Thieves, announced that the organization would find a different way to hold the event in different titles.
Now, the Gamers for Equality series will donate $100,000 from three different events in titles "League of Legends," "VALORANT" and "Fortnite."
