Last Fall, The AbleGamers Charity, Adaptive Action Sports, Beyond Entertainment, Challonge, Mount Sinai, and Logitech G, came together for the Logitech G Adaptive Esports Invitational, a private, invite-only esports tournament specifically designed for gamers with disabilities. The virtual 2v2 Rocket League tournament featured six invited teams squaring off in a single elimination bracket for gear prizing.
Today, we’re unveiling the first in a series of videos that tell the story of the inaugural tournament. We’ll launch a series of videos over the coming weeks, highlighting how the event was created, featuring incredible game play, and outlining its significance for the community and participants. Prior to this event, esports competitions for people with accessibility needs haven’t existed, even though gaming is popular within the community.
Because the event was so successful and well received by our community of invitees, we’re excited to open this first-of-its-kind esports competition to the public in select regions this Fall.
