Sports leagues, teams and athletes across the globe are taking part in a campaign to celebrate and thank our doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other frontline workers, and the esports community is right there with them. Players and fans are dedicating jerseys to their heroes, from family members to doctors who helped save their life by treating their own cases of COVID-19.
The Coronavirus has affected all aspects of our world and daily life, bringing entire businesses to a halt - the traditional sports scene being one of them. Esports, on the other hand, has more eyes on it than ever, and in many ways, the industry is thriving. And while traditional sports and esports are often pitted as rivals, they've joined up to recognize the strength of our essential workers risking their own health every day.
From Hearthstone, to Call of Duty, to Overwatch, and more, esports teams, leagues, and players are inviting their fans to help celebrate, encourage, and thank our heathcare workers. So go grab your favorite jersey, some duct tape, and a sharpie, and join The Real Heroes Project to support our front lines.
