As the world continues to practice social distancing and remain inside amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the e-sports sector has taken off and Facebook Gaming is leveraging this trend with a new celebrity Mario Tennis Aces tournament, aptly titled 'Sat at Home Slam.'
The newly launched platform will be pairing up celebrites including Gigi Hadid and Serena Williams, Hailey Bieber and Naomi Osaka, and Karlie Kloss and Maria Sharapova for a series of live-streamed matches. All competitors will receive $25,000 USD to donate to their charity of choice while the winner will be awarded an additional $1 million USD donation.
The Facebook Gaming “Stay at Home Slam” livestream begins on May 3 at 4 p.m. EST on Facebook Gaming and the IMG Tennis Facebook page.
