Announcing the Twitch Prime Crown Cup, featuring EA SPORTS

Venture onto the virtual pitch for this year’s Twitch Prime Crown Cup in London on July 13 featuring EA SPORTS titles. Starting at 10AM PT, teams of celebrities from the worlds of sports and TV will vie for the crown in a fun contest live on twitch.tv/twitchprime. Who will run the table — or deliver the epic comeback — to take home the crown?

Hosted by streamer Castro1021, the event consists of 4 teams, each featuring a celebrity captain, a streamer, and two additional TV or sports celebrities. With each match being 2-v-2, we’re sure to hear lots of smack talk from their other teammates in the gallery, so make sure you catch all the action live! After 6 league matches, the top 2 teams play off in a grand finale to determine a winner.

Event festivities kick off July 8 with Castro engaging with his community on his Twitch channel to select a daily draft pick for each celebrity captain. Make sure you tune in to help build the teams the celebrities will use!

The contest also features items from the exclusive Twitch Prime EA SPORTS title’s in-game content drop taking place a few days before the London Twitch Prime Crown Cup begins, so make sure you’re following Twitch Prime’s Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram feeds to get the latest information on what’s dropping so you have all the goods before your friends.
