The LEGO Group, Blizzard and Twitch are teaming up to organize a Twitch Rivals tournament where the players compete for donations of LEGO boxes benefitting charity.

Selected “Overwatch” streamers will be invited to captain a community team for a day long tournament taking place across the U.S., the U.K., France, Germany and Sweden. Each regional competition will feature four rounds of gameplay where teams earn points for each victory they secure.

At the end of each regional competition, an ultimate regional “Overwatch” LEGO winner will be crowned. Each regional winner will then get a chance to choose a local charity where the LEGO Group will provide a donation of LEGO boxes.

Charities already taking part in the event include Toys for Tots, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and Toy Bank in the U.S., Giving People based in Sweden, Dein München in Germany, Cèkedubonheur in France and Fairy Bricks in the U.K.

LEGO originally teased the Overwatch tournaments earlier this month with the debut of new Junkertown sets.
