Vietnamese content creators are among 40 contestants from eight Southeast Asian nations taking part in a charity esport event next month.

Five streamers and online personalities, ADN Dang YM, Be Chanh Gaming, Milona, Misthy, and Msuong, will join celebrities from Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand for the League of Legends: Wild Rift SEA Pentaboom Showdown.

The event will take place on December 12-13 and be broadcast live on the game's official Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch platforms in a number of languages.

Five-player teams from each country will compete for total prize money of $66,500.

Riot Games, the American game company that developed League of Legends, will donate $60,000 to various charities to promote literacy and education of children and those with special needs from less privileged backgrounds.

League of Legends, or LoL, is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) video game launched in 2009.

Players control a ‘champion’ with special abilities and battle against a team of other players or AI-controlled champions in a pre-defined arena.

The goal is to destroy the other team's ‘nexus,’ a structure located at the heart of base which is protected by defensive structures.
