Three huge name companies are partnering to host the first celebrity Halo Infinite competitive event. The event will feature pro gamers such as Bugha and Snip3down along with athletes and musicians.

Halo Infinite is in its infancy as a game, but that hasn’t stopped some huge names from hosting an event. Atlantic Records, Xbox, Coinbase, Kay Jewelers, Aim Lab, eFuse, and VaynerSports have partnered to unveil The Green Room Gaming series.

The Green Room Halo Infinite event will feature streamers, pro gamers, professional athletes, and musical artists in a one-of-a-kind competition.

The likes of FaZe Nate Hill, Sueco, Bankrol Hayden, Alt J’s Thom Sonny Green, as well as sports stars Sean O’Malley, Baker Mayfield, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and JuJu Smith-Schuster will compete in a $20,000 tournament from December 15th.

Fortnite streamer and former World champion Bugha is also on the list of gaming talent for the event.

The event will be broadcast from the Atlanic Records’ official YouTube channel

With stars from the NFL, UFC, recording industry and beyond, this is a group that doesn’t just represent pro gaming. Instead, each competitor just loves Halo.

In fact, that’s the one common thread—each one of the participants is a Halo fan through and through. But whether that transfers into skills that can help them win… well you’ll have to wait and see.

These stars will be organized into eight gaming squads. With the event co-organized by Coinbase, $10,000 of the prize pool will be awarded in cryptocurrency.

The remaining $10k prize pool will be cash, and the winners will receive a custom Championship Rings designed by Kay Jewelers.

A Partnership to Remember

Alongside Atlantic Records, and Coinbase, several other supporting partners have joined the event to make it even better. Aim Lab, eFuse, and VaynerSports are providing additional support, with Aim Lab also debuting “The Green Room X Aim Lab” and their own Spotify playlist for the event. 

This incredibly exciting event is set to be hosted by influencer Mitch “OG Pickle” Long and DJ and producer Joey Franchize. This is a pairing uniquely suited for this vast mix of personalities from across the sporting, entertainment and gaming world. 

To catch the event, tune in on December 15th on Atlantic Records’ official YouTube channel. Things kick off from 6 PM EST, and you can tune in live here.
