The international men's team competition has partnered with Tennis Clash, one of the world’s most popular tennis game for mobile platforms, developed by Wildlife Studios, to create a Laver Cup-themed in-game tournament. Fans will have the opportunity to experience the event in a fun new way.

Tennis Clash will host a Laver Cup tournament for gamers September 24th-27th. Fans will be able to take part in a virtual version of the tournament and experience what it’s like on the court.

The online competition will be divided into four leagues—Beginner, Rookie, Junior, and Challenger—with each player assigned to a skill level based on previous game play stats.

The champion of each league will receive a pair of tickets to attend Laver Cup 2021 at TD Garden in Boston.

The runner-up will win a limited-edition racket, signed by Swiss superstar Roger Federer. The third-ranking player will receive commemorative Laver Cup merchandise.

“We are excited to collaborate with Tennis Clash to offer this limited-time Laver Cup-themed tournament in their popular online sports game," Laver Cup CEO Steve Zacks said. "Fans will have the chance to experience signature elements of the Laver Cup in a fun new way. The black court, gameplay, and graphics will make you feel as if your Tennis Clash character is at the event representing Team Europe or Team World.”

Tennis Clash characters will be outfitted with uniforms in the characteristic blue and red colors of Team Europe and Team World, respectively, while playing 10-point match tie breaks on a black court, all signature components of the real Laver Cup.

Complete details about the tournament, how to participate, rules and terms and conditions are on Wildlife's website here.
