Xbox will partner with the Special Olympics later this November to host esports tournaments that include both in-person and virtual events. And it will be streamed on the official Xbox Twitch channel for people to watch.
Thanks to an Xbox blog post, we know that the tournament will begin on November 11th with Rocket League, where Special Olympics athletes and Unified partners will compete virtually for the opportunity to compete in person with NFL athletes and WWE Wrestlers to perform as part of a live streaming event to be held on November 18, 2023 in Los Angeles.
