Evolution Championship Series (Evo) today announced that registration for Evo Online will be free and be open to competitors in the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea, and Europe. Competitors will be able to register starting on Friday, June 5, 2020 at 12 p.m. PDT.
Competitors can choose to participate in one or more of the following open tournaments: Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, Skullgirls 2nd Encore, and Them’s Fightin’ Herds.
In the wake of the current coronavirus pandemic, Evo is bringing the event online and teaming up with Project HOPE to help raise funds for much-needed PPE (personal protective equipment), training, and other support for front line health workers in the U.S. and around the world who are fighting against COVID-19.
Individuals can help support by purchasing a commemorative Evo Online badge and lanyard for $25 USD. One hundred percent of proceeds from all contributions will be donated to Project HOPE’s Global COVID-19 Relief.
Registration will be live on the following links on June 5:
