United Nation's Solidarity Cup

All-star athletes playing video games competitively to combat COVID-19? Sounds like a headline steal! The Solidarity Challenge is an online fundraising event that pits the world's top "real-life sport" athletes against one another via Konami's eFootball PES 2020, in collaboration with the United Nation's (UN) Foundation and the World Health Organisation (WHO). Participating athletes include footballer Antoine Griezmann, rugby player Danny Care and even golfer Tommy Fleetwood, with the money raised being funneled into the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

The Solidarity Challenge will run from today 12 - 14 June, with each match day beginning at 6.30PM (GMT+8). You can catch the live broadcast on YouTube, or opt to watch the telecast on 14 June, 6PM (GMT+8) on the eGG Network TV channel.
