These Soldiers and National Guard Members Have Game—and They’re Going to TwitchCon 2019
DALLAS – Soldiers and National Guard members will put their gaming skills on center stage for the world to see at TwitchCon 2019 on Sept. 27 thanks to a partnership among the Army & Air Force Exchange Service, Army Entertainment, Installation Management Command (IMCOM) Family and MWR Program, and the Army National Guard. The Soldiers and National Guard members won qualifying “Street Fighter V” tournaments at installations and Army National Guard armories around the world this spring and summer. The qualifiers were part of IMCOM Family and MWR’s effort to provide opportunities for Soldiers to recharge, reduce stress and promote esprit de corps. Soldiers and Guard members will kick off TwitchCon on the main stage Sept. 27 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. PST, with the contests broadcast on Twitch at www.twitch.tv/armyentertainment.
