The Brawlhalla World Championship, an esports event organised by game developer and publisher Ubisoft, has joined forces with not-for-profit foundation Make-A-Wish and Atlanta-based esports production company Skillshot Media.

As a result of the deal, the parties will collaborate to release in-game items that are rewarded to players who make donations to the charity during the Brawlhalla World Championship.

The Brawlhalla World Championship takes place on November 3rd-5th at the Cobb Galleria in Atlanta, Georgia.

The tournament will feature singles and doubles competitions and uses open sign-up tournaments, meaning anyone can sign up and compete for a share of the prize money.

In January 2023, Ubisoft announced the 2023 Brawlhalla esports season will feature a total prize pool of $1m (~£822,760) split across each open sign-up and invitational tournament taking place over the course of the year.

In addition to in-game titles and avatars for Brawlhalla players that donate to Make-A-Wish, the highest donor from each day of the event will receive a ‘unique collectable item.’

Partnering with Brawlhalla marks the first expansion of Make-A-Wish’s esports collaboration after joining forces with North American esports organisation Ghost Gaming and Skillshot Media in April 2023.

Mateo Palfreman, Brawlhalla Esports Director, spoke on the partnership: “Our studio was enthusiastic and honoured to partner with Make-A-Wish Georgia.

“They are a beloved organization and it is our honour to support their mission of granting life-changing wishes to children facing critical illnesses.”
