eSports event to take place at The White House next week

The White House is set to play host to a multi game event and Twitch stream next week that will feature some eSports show matches.

On December 12th a four hour Twitch broadcast will air from the most important building in the USA in an attempt to raise awareness about Health Insurance. Many top streamers will be taking part, and the event will feature a couple of eSports show matches.

First off the NRG Esports Rocket League team will take part in a show match, and then top US Street Fighter players Justin Wong and Mike Ross will face off in a Street Fighter V show match.

Shaq is also involved somehow, and I must say Shaq being so heavily involved in eSports in general is so entertaining. The video he made for the event, which is below, proves my point.

Say what you want about the Obama administration, but he is certainly going out on a high. Not many other presidents would let Shaq bring a load of eSports players to their crib just as they were about to be evicted.
