On July 13th, Twitch Prime Crown Cup tournaments will feature Apex Legends and a top EA SPORTS game in an eight-hour virtual play-off between all-star teams.

Players will include Olympic gold medalist runner Sir Mo Farah, footballer Thierry Henry, and champion street skateboarder Letícia Bufoni.

Starting at 10AM PT, that’s 6pm UK time, teams of celebrities from the worlds of sports and TV will vie for the crown in a fun contest live on twitch.tv/twitchprime.

You can watch the action live on Amazon Prime. Gaming deals kick off on July 15, but there are already a few gaming and video game deals live. There’s everything from the Harry Potter LEGO games to the Red Dead Redemption 2 steel book.

What is Twitch Prime Crown Cup?

The event consists of four teams, each has a celebrity captain, a streamer, and two TV or sports celebrities.

Each match is 2-v-2, so expect plenty of backchat and sass from  teammates in the gallery.

After six league matches, the top two teams play off in a grand finale to determine a winner.

Ahead of the main event, Castro will elect a daily draft pick for each celebrity captain from July 8 onwards.
