G2 Esports announced the release of its #G2ARMY-themed, non-medical face mask with all proceeds going to support Charité, one of Europe’s largest university hospitals. G2 will donate all of the proceeds to the Berlin-based hospital’s emergency aid fund in the fight against COVID-19 to assist the front line medical workers working to prevent the spread of coronavirus and provide life-saving healthcare to those affected by the virus. G2’s partner Mastercard will be covering all production and shipping costs of the masks, as well as match all profits from the face masks to support The Charité.

Now fans can both support their favorite esports organization with a comfortable and stylish face mask that features the G2 logo and a proud display of the #G2ARMY, while also knowing their purchase is making an impact for those who are choosing to show up every day for coronavirus patients.

“We realize this is a challenging time for our fans around the world and want to do our part to fight against the coronavirus pandemic and support our communities,” said G2 Esports CEO Carlos “ocelote” Rodriguez. “We are grateful for the brave front line medical workers who leave their homes every day so that we can stay safe in ours. It’s our hope that with the release of a branded G2 face mask, we can collectively come together as the #G2ARMY to play our part in fighting against COVID-19 while supporting our everyday heroes – healthcare workers.”

“We are pleased to strengthen our partnership with G2 Esports also during these unprecedented times. On top of the remote experiences we already delivered with G2, it is great to see that this partnership also supports the enormously important and valuable work of Charité,” said Jessica Claar, Vice President Marketing Communications at Mastercard Germany & Switzerland.

 

Starting today fans can make a statement while standing with front line medical workers through the purchase of a G2 Esports face mask. Available exclusively online in the G2 Esports shop at https://shop.g2esports.com/products/g2-face-mask.
