AFL Gamers Network Announces Stream King Fortnite Tournament

May 20, 2020

It’s totally understandable if you’ve not heard of the AFL Gamers Network, so let me give you some background. With the AFL Premiership Season on hold, the AFL recruited some of its most game-obsessed players to take part in a brand new streaming initiative, the AFL Gamers Network. Featuring some of the competition’s most well known athletes, near invariably playing some form of battle royale game, the initiative has given fans a way to connect with them while they aren’t able to take to the field.

While the initiative has up until this point been a simple streaming set up swapping between players, the AFL has teamed up with some big streamers to set up a charity tournament to crown the AFL ‘Stream King’ duo in Fortnite. The tournament will features players such as Brisbane’s Mitch Robinson, who is already well known as a streamer in his own right, Hawthorn’s James Sicily, Port Adelaide’s Connor Rozzee and more, as well as streamers Muselk, MrFreshAsianand x2Twins. More players and streamers are expected to be announced in the coming days.

Officially sponsored by both the AFL and Epic Games, the Stream King tournament is all about charity, with donations being made to the top four duo’s chosen charities as follows:

  • First place duo: $50,000
  • Second place duo: $30,000
  • Third place duo: $15,000
  • Fourth place duo: $5,000
