Bucharest, 11 June , 2021 – Under the concept “If we can play together, we can grow together”, Vodafone Romania brings parents and children to the same side of the game in June. This weekend, on Saturday, video gaming fans are invited to a fun and interactive online event.
The Good Gaming League will play the most famous video games together with their parents in a unique event hosted by Gaming Marathon and connected by Vodafone. Attendees will have the opportunity to discover the stories behind the gamers’ success and the importance of responsible gaming.
Fans will be able to watch exclusive streams from Jaxi, Antonia, Gannicus, IceManLucky, ZaSami, AmyClaire and Mădălin (the Good Gaming League team). For example, Jaxi and his father will both play Counter-Strike 1.6 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Their team will combat against Jaxi’s community.
On the same day, the participants will have the opportunity to attend a stream in which Antonia will talk with her mother about the support she received in her gamer & streamer career.
In addition, the fans of Brawl Stars will have the opportunity to take part in a unique tournament. Mădălin is waiting for his followers & fans to enter, together with one parent, in this challenging “Brawl stars 2v2” competition.
We want to encourage parents to share some good video games moments with their sons and daughters, just as we were playing chess or rummy with our parents. Certainly, we all remember those dear moments spent together. With the help of video games, parents can build a much stronger and closer connection and communication with their children. And, at the same time, they can find out, without being intrusive, what exactly attracts their children's attention
, stated Laura Barbu, Director Brand & Marketing Communication, Vodafone Romania.
Gaming Marathon connected by Vodafone will be hosted this Saturday, with live broadcasts throughout the day on gamers’ streaming channels offering the fans the opportunity to attend to intensive rounds of CS:Go, Fortnite, Brawl Stars, Minecraft and Call of Duty.
