Have you ever won a game of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, seen “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner” appear on screen, and suddenly feel a pang of hunger in the pit of your stomach?
Thankfully, you may be able to win a real life chicken dinner due to PUBG success thanks to a new partnership between Team Dignitas and Buffalo Wild Wings.
On May 5, a tournament will be held for hundreds of amateur players in PUBG. The grand prize is $500 and an all expenses paid trip to E3 this year in Los Angeles. Competitors will also receive Buffalo Wild Wings gift cards for every victory, redeemable for an actual chicken dinner.
Second and third place will win $350 and $150 respectively, as well as being listed as an amateur PUBG player on Team Dignitas’ website. Top 10 finalists will receive co-branded Team Dignitas and Buffalo Wild Wings backpacks.
Lisa “Lucy Mae” Malambri, Matt “Matrym” Oats, Steve “Toffees” Pierce, and Leigh “Deman” Smith will host and commentate the event, which will be broadcast on Dignitas’ Facebook page and Deman’s Twitch channel.
“We’re excited to continue our partnership with Team Dignitas through this online tournament and provide an opportunity and platform for all players to compete,” said Bob Ruhland, vice president of marketing for Buffalo Wild Wings.
“We anticipate incredible fan interest in this, our second amateur gaming tournament with Buffalo Wild Wings,” said Adam Davis, CRO of Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, which owns Dignitas. “We applaud Buffalo Wild Wings’ continued dedication to engaging our fans in authentic and interactive ways.”
Players can sign up for the event on the official website.
