Julio "Beast" Bianchi and Thabo "Yvng Savage" Moloi will have the opportunity to win money for charity, with the winner getting R10 000 for the charity or do-good entity of their choice. The runner-up will get R5000 for their selected charity, while one lucky viewer who tunes into the stream to watch will win R5000!

Bianchi will be representing Norwood Central Primary School, who do incredible work to provide food and support to children in the community.

Thabo will be representing the Kolisi Foundation (run by fellow Red Bull athlete Siya Kolisi and his wife, Rachel Kolisi) - with their vision being to change the narrative of inequality for people in vulnerable and disadvantaged communities in South Africa.

Both Beast and Yvng Savage, who play under Goliath Gaming, have some impressive FIFA achievements under their belt, and their skillset, the showmatch should make for exciting viewing.

Beast, who used to be a semi-pro footballer, competed in the FIFA eWorld Cup Global Series Playoffs in Amsterdam in 2018 where he impressively beat 2X world champion, August Agge Rosenmeier, and finished off in the top 64 in the world on PS4 in the tournament. On South African soil, Beast has won many top local tournaments and ended the FIFA20 season as #3 on PS4 in SA and #155 in the world on PS4 in the official FIFA20 rankings.

Yvng Savage broke out onto the competitive FIFA scene when he won the VS Gaming FIFA Festival in 2018, and has gone on to win numerous local FIFA tournaments since. In April 2020 he captained the official eBafana Bafana FIFA squad in the FIFA eNations Stay and Play Cup, with teammates Cassper Nyovest, Sibusiso Vilakazi and Kagiso Rabada. Yvng Savage ended the FIFA20 season as #1 on PS4 in SA and #73 in the world on PS4 in the official FIFA20 rankings. Most recently, Yvng Savage was announced as the first Red Bull esports athlete on the African continent.

The tournament was made possible by sponsors LG, who will show off their new OLED TV range for the showmatch, and there will be even more awesome prizes leading up to the big event, which you can follow via social media:
