Florida Mutineers Set to Battle NFL Players in Call of Duty Warzone

With the amount of collaboration between professional leagues lately, real sports are pretty much esports now.

In the fight against COVID-19, the Florida Mutineers, of Misfits Gaming Group (MGG), will bring together the worlds of traditional sports and esports with the $25,000 Wrecked Royale charity Warzone tournament. It will be presented by SoFi with all prize money going to COVID-19 charities.

This is certainly going to be quite an event, with a huge amount of talent both on and off the field professionally.

Who Will Be There?

On Wednesday, May 13 at 6 pm EST, the Florida Mutineers will join a number of pro athletes. Athletes attending include Terrell Owens (NFL Hall of Famer), Ryan Shazier (former Pittsburgh Steelers), Mack Wilson (Cleveland Browns), Sheldrick Redwine (Cleveland Browns), Shaq Thompson (Carolina Panthers), James Bradberry (New York Giants), Jedrick Wills (Cleveland Browns), Vernon Butler (Buffalo Bills), and Deejay Dallas (Seattle Seahawks).

These athletes will join pro Call of Duty players, pro athletes and streamers to compete in a one-day Call of Duty Warzone tournament. The bracket consists of 12 squads with four players each. All teams will walk away with a participation prize to donate to a COVID-19 charity of their choice. Finally, the winning team will receive $5,000.

How To Watch

Fans will be able to tune in and watch the tournament live on the Florida Mutineers Twitch channel: twitch.tv/flmutineers. In addition, there will be quality commentary from Call of Duty League shout casters. MGG has teamed up with eFuse and Esports Engine for the production and logistics of the tournament.

Ben Spoont, CEO and co-founder of Misfits Gaming Group, commented on the event:

 “As the world fights against the impact of the coronavirus, it’s important to do what we can to give back. It’s always incredible to see pro players go head to head with professional athletes, and after the fun we had at our Miami event in February with the Mutineers and NFL players, we were excited to bring the esports and sports worlds together again for an entertaining showdown that’s helping a fantastic cause.”
