With the same noble purpose as major sporting events like the Olympics, the upcoming Your Home, Your Arena (YHYA) Charity Cup seeks to unify the esports community via online competition between countries. In addition to entertaining viewers with exciting matches, the goal of YHWA is to raise awareness and funds for the people who are struggling to make ends meet due to the impact of COVID-19.
Organised by the Asian Electronic Sports Federation (AESF), which governed esports for the 2019 SEA Games and 2018 Asian Games, the YHYA Charity Cup will feature Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and The King of Fighters as part of its games line-up.
Here are the eight countries who are participating in the invitational tournament for Mobile Legends: Bang Bang:
On top of the Charity Cup, the AESF also launched the Your Home, Your Arena Charity Fundraising, an accessible platform where the public can contribute funds to assist those severely affected by the pandemic.
