Florida Mutineers "Plunder in the Sky" Event Set for Dec. 4 to Support Twelve Nonprofit Organizations
Unprecedented Streamed Charity Event Will Provide
Never-Before-Seen Broadcast Experience
Competition to Feature 96-Player Battle in Call of Duty®: Warzone
BOCA RATON, FL, November 18, 2020 - Misfits Gaming Group (MGG), a global esports and entertainment leader, announced a first-of-its-kind livestream giveback event, “Plunder in the Sky,” on Friday, December 4, 2020 at 4:00pm EST hosted by its Call of Duty League™ team, the Florida Mutineers. In “Plunder in the Sky,” players will compete in Call of Duty®: Warzone. The special three-hour Call of Duty Charity Invitational event will give back to some of the most notable and preeminent nonprofit organizations and will be available to stream on MGG’s participating Florida Mutineers’ Twitch channel at twitch.tv/floridamutineers.
The event will be produced using unique broadcast capabilities which will give fans a never-seen-before viewing experience. The broadcast will utilize Warzone Correspondents to give players and fans a live report on what’s happening on the ground. While they won’t be fighting for the same prize, they’ll be fighting to stay alive and will also offer up challenges to the participating teams that result in additional money raised for the charities.
“Plunder in the Sky” celebrates the continued partnership between the gaming industry and non-profit sector by inviting 12 charity organizations to participate and benefit in the live fundraiser, including: Call of Duty Endowment, American Cancer Society, Gamers Outreach, Wounded Warrior Project, Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles, Quest to Conquer Cancer, Gift of Life Marrow Registry, Miami Cancer Institute (part of Baptist Health South Florida), St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital, No Kid Hungry, and Muscular Dystrophy Association.
“We’re thrilled to have a hand in supporting a trailblazing charitable event of this scope. It not only parallels the heart of our brand, but represents the ever-evolving breadth of the esports world,” said Ben Spoont, co-founder and CEO of Misfits Gaming Group. “It’s a tremendous honor to create a new space for some of the biggest streamers in the industry to directly support and give back to these charity organizations, all while doing what they do best.”
The participating charities will pick some of the biggest streamers to carry their banner in Plunder, a game mode featured in Call of Duty: Warzone. The players will play three rounds with in-game challenges throughout, and at the end, all of the awarded money will go directly to the charities. All money received will go into a Tournament Prize Pool, and winners, top-scorers and teams that completed entertainment-based challenges will be awarded prizes.
