We’ve talked a lot about PGI and the 20 teams that will be competing for their share of the $2 million USD prize pool, but we haven’t talked much about some of the other events happening during the tournament. Today, we’re announcing one of those events, the PGI Charity Showdown!
The PGI Charity Showdown combines some of the biggest streamers from around the world with professional players competing in the tournament. Each squad will face off to earn money for the charity of their choice, with a $1 million USD total prize pool. Featured streamers include Shroud, Ninja, DrDisRespect, Moondye, Rubiu5, Willyrex, Sacriel, and many more!
Top placing teams will evenly split the prize pool for their charities as follows:
- 1st Place: $600,000 ($150,000 per player)
- 2nd Place: $300,000 ($75,000 per player)
- 3rd Place: $100,000 ($25,000 per player)
