PLANO, Texas, Dec. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The legendary Doritos Bowl is back on Twitch Rivals, the #1 destination for competitive entertainment on Twitch, and Doritos is taking this year's competition to another level. With one epic day of gameplay on December 6 led by four top Twitch creators playing five different games, for the first time, fans will be able to watch some of their favorites play games that they've never streamed before.
Having returned as an Official Marketing Partner for Twitch Rivals North America, Doritos help the 12-week Doritos Disruptor Series where team captains Swagg, itsHafu, lolTyler1 and iiTzTimmy hosted community tournaments to identify their top players, the four captains partook in a snake draft to build a robust squad of 20 people to join them on game day. The 2021 Doritos Bowl is the finale event that will bring the creators' communities together and feature all four game titles they played during their respective Doritos Disruptor Series qualifying tournaments – Call of Duty: Warzone, Hearthstone, League of Legends, and Golf with your Friends – plus a surprise fifth game! One winning team will walk away as the 2021 Doritos Bowl champions and take home a portion of the $175,000 prize pool and a one-year supply of Doritos.
"Bringing next-level experiences is at the core of who we are as a brand, our fans have come to expect Doritos to deliver new and exciting experiences," said Caio Correa, senior director of marketing, Frito-Lay North America. "We know creators tend to stick to the games and genres they know, so we're bringing fans the opportunity to catch their favorite Twitch influencer playing a game they may not typically play. With over six hours of gameplay slated, this year's Doritos Bowl is sure to deliver."
"I was thrilled when I heard Doritos would be hosting the Doritos Bowl again this year on Twitch Rivals, and even more hyped to be selected as one of the four captains," Kris 'Swagg' Lamberson said. "I like to think my past experiences gives me an advantage against the other teams, and I'm looking forward to schooling the rest of the captains with the team I've built to win Bowl this year."
