As the 2020 election quickly approaches, Nerd Street Gamers is proud to continue our partnership with Gamers.Vote in an effort to encourage all gamers across the nation to register to vote. According to the Pew Research Center, half of the adult population in the United States play video games. That is over 133 million potential voters, making gamers one of the largest voting blocks in American history.
“A huge percentage of adults in this country are gamers, meaning this group is a force for making a real impact on our futures,” said John Fazio, CEO of Nerd Street Gamers. “This is why we’re excited to work with a unique organization like Gamers.Vote to encourage more people to be change agents in their communities and exercise their voices by registering to vote.”
Nerd Street Gamers wants you to share your voice and register to vote for what you believe in.
That is why we are partnering with Gamers.Vote to host a 64-team, online VALORANT tournament on Saturday, September 26th and Sunday, September 27th at 10:00am PST/1:00pm EST. Along with competitive gameplay and entertaining casters, Nerd Street Gamers will be encouraging all viewers to register to vote.
This tournament is not only working towards our common goal of increasing voter registration, but it also provides the same competitive opportunities for gamers to hone their craft and be seen in the industry as with all of our events. In fact, prior to being signed by professional organizations, several well-known teams have participated in previous Nerd Street Gamers VALORANT tournaments including Together We Are Terrific, French Canadians, and MouseSpaz. Nerd Street Gamers tournaments are open to gamers of all skill levels.
Sunday’s VALORANT tournament will be streamed on Nerd Street Gamers twitch channel.
Cost of registration for the tournament is $50 per player with a prize pot of $10,000. Tournaments typically fill up quickly, so if you are interested in competing, secure your spot today.
