Team Captain Esports Trade Association Extra Life 2024

The Esports Trade Association has pledged to play games and raise funds for kids at our local children's hospital.

We're eagerly anticipating the opportunities that lie ahead in 2024 as we persist in our mission to leverage gaming for the betterment of children's health. Our vision is to integrate the kids involved with Extra Life into a special aspect of our conference, EsportsNext 2024, coinciding with the NASCAR Chicago Street Race on July 7-9! To support this endeavor, we're raising funds aimed at donating new and enjoyable games, among other contributions, for these remarkable kids.
