Boston, MA, February 09, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The Midnight Riders, an independent supporters group of the New England Revolution, today announced plans for their sixth annual FIFA video game tournament. The tournament, which will be held on the morning and afternoon of February 19th at Elephant and Castle in downtown Boston, will support the ThinkTaylor Foundation.
Each year, the tournament gathers some of the area’s best FIFA players under one roof, in the name of raising money and awareness for ThinkTaylor, an organization founded by former Revolution striker Taylor Twellman, whose career was cut short by concussion-related illnesses. The tournament is a highlight of the Midnight Riders’ philanthropic calendar, and helps bring needed awareness of the impacts of traumatic brain injuries and concussions to soccer fans and video gaming fans in the Boston area.
Additional information about the event, as well as a link to sign up, is available at the Midnight Riders’ website, midnightriders.com.
