British Army esports tournament raises nearly £ 2,000 for Combat Stress charity

The Heroes Cup, the British Army’s annual esports competition, has raised £ 1,857 for the veterans charity Combat Stress for mental health.

The competition, which was open to all members of the British Army’s esports community, including service personnel, veterans and civilians, competed in three different games: CSGO, League Of Legends and Rocket League.

After a month of competition, the grand finale was streamed on December 13, 2021.

The “Checkmate” team won the Rocket League trophy, “Carry Potter” the Counter-Strike trophy and “Bot Gap” the League of Legends trophy.

Lt Col Tim Elliott, British Army Esports Officer in Charge, said, “One of the main focuses of Army Esports is the community aspect and the desire to take care of your friends. This is why mental health is so important and being there for your friends either face to face or online is what friends do.

“If someone needs professional help, Army Esports can help by referring you to great organizations like Combat Stress. In return, the Army Esports community will support these great charities while they support us. “
