There is good news for Xbox lovers. Xbox will collaborate with the Special Olympics in November and will host esports tournaments both physically as well as virtually.
Xbox through an official blog post has informed us that the tournament will kick off with Rocket League on November 11. The Special Olympics athletes can compete with each other in the tournament which will pave the way to play alongside NFL athletes and WWE wrestlers in person as a part of a live-stream event on November 18, 2023, in Los Angeles.
It is not the first time that Microsoft Xbox has teamed up with Special Olympics. Previously, the duo has collaborated on the shoutcaster training, where they develop “esports commentating skills” at the Microsoft Experience Center.
In addition to this, Xbox players can donate to “organizations supporting people in the gaming and disability community” through Microsoft rewards.
The list of the organizations where you can donate:
Special Effect helps to transform the lives of physically disabled people around the world through the innovative use of technology.
The US-based organization helps to improve the lives of severely wounded and disabled warfighters through custom-adapted devices. All adapted items are provided at no cost to the warfighters.
It helps gamers combat social isolation, foster inclusive communities, and improve the quality of life for people with disabilities.
