For the first time in Bulgaria – a football tournament between YouTubers and fans to raise money for charity

For the first time in Bulgaria on the 07.07.2018 a football tournament was held with the idea of raising money for charity. The organizers, Boris Yotov, Galin Zhelyazkov and Rumen Borisov are 16-year-old boys, who want to present us that computer fans are leading an active way of life and can provoke their followers to spend more time outdoors doing sports activities.

Trotoara Foundation assisted the boys with finding a space with excellent conditions for implementing the event – Bauhaus Arena. The funds gathered from the entrance fee and the received donations were given to Trotoara for the construction, renovation and expense for the youth center TRAP – Trotoara Room for Angry People.

Tournament program:

The meeting, which started the tournament, was an Allstar match where YouTubers faced YouTubers in an epic battle. The rest of the matches were played by YouTubers versus their fans. Fans and YouTubers divided by two teams of 6 people plus several players in reserve. At the time of the event, all of the viewers were enjoying free Coca-Cola drinks.
