What better way to support in times of need than by taking advantage of your talent? That is just what all the athletes around the world are doing and now the NFL players joined in, organizing a Madden tournament to raise funds against the Coronavirus.
It has been one of the least affected leagues.
When the virus pandemic exploded, almost all soccer competitions were in the middle of the season, so they had to be suspended. The NBA, Formula 1 and MLB also ran with bad luck because they had to postpone the start of their 2020 season.
The NFL campaign is planned to start in September and so far there has been no change. Although during the hiatus from other sports, video games have come under the spotlight as a way to pass the time for fans and gamers.
Although now they decided to give him more than just entertainment.
This is The Checkdown’s Madden 20 Tournament to rally relief efforts against COVID-19 with competing NFL stars. There are 8 players from different teams who will have to face someone else in the quest to be the champion of the first tournament.
Among the competitors will be Derwin James who will face teammate Keenan Allen. Chiefs teammates Tyrann Mathieu and Tyreek Hill will meet in the first round. There will also be Eagles catcher DeSean Jackson facing 49ers rookie Deebo Samuel and then Browns Jarvis Landry battling Denzel Ward.
They will be broadcast through the ‘Madden Twitch’ channel.
Each of the four first round matches will be on the oficial Twitch channel. They will start at 6 p.m. with Jarvis Landry and Denzel Ward, an hour later it will be Tyrann Mathieu against Tyreek Hill. That is followed by DeSean Jackson vs. Deebo Samuel and the finale at 9 p.m. It will be Keenan Allen and Derwin James. That will lead to the semifinals and finals for the championship.
This Madden tournament is to raise funds against the Coronavirus, so the more people watch it, the more you can help. Also, if it becomes a success, they could continue organizing it in the future, will these players be as good with a control as they are in the teams?
