APAC is set to play host to a charity tournament on Dec. 17, in a bid to raise money for cancer research through the charitable non-profit CureCancer. The organization has raised $87 million throughout its history and has used that to fund 540 research grants across 55 years.

Viewers can donate to the cause through Tiltify, with various rewards on offer as the total grows, and watch the games on the REKTgn Twitch channel.

Teams

Four APAC countries will be playing the Clash of the Nations in what is essentially an APAC-only "Siege World Cup". Multiple active and retired pro players will be participating, with the quality of play likely to be at a high level as a result.

Thailand

Team Thailand is comprised of what was essentially the Six Invitational 2022 Elevate team, but with FURY captain Sillapakorn "Lycolis" Dokmaikhaw effectively replacing Siwa "Nerix" Kaewtossapone.

Singapore

Team Singapore sees a return of the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals Aerowolf roster, though with Jordan "Jrdn" Cheng playing instead of Adrian "Ysaera" Wui.

Australia

Team Australia, meanwhile, is a combination of the now-disbanded Chiefs ESC roster and the Knights core.
