Each Friday, community members will be able to earn the opportunity to participate in the festivities. Each Sunday, the players will hit the Drop Zone and duke it out for the glory of coming out on top among the titans in the Chiefs’ streaming stars.
Nick Bobir, Chiefs Managing Director, is looking forward to Drop Zone being able to connect gamers and fans alike over the coming weeks.
“We are excited to be able to offer the chance for our community to come together in a time where our regular communities and support networks have been disrupted. By connecting our community with our partners such as Red Bull and our wonderful network of content creators we’re hoping to get through this together, one weekend at a time,” he told Snowball.
