More about the ALGS Team Shop
The ALGS Team Shop is Apex Legends’ first in-game shop to offer cosmetics that are based on real-life esports teams. EA has confirmed that a portion of all sales will go directly to the participating teams. As a result, this promotion allows players to support their favorite teams in addition to receiving new and unique in-game collectibles.
The ALGS Year 2 Championship will kick off in two days at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina. It will last from July 7-10. Nevertheless, Apex Legends players can look forward to an additional week of Championship-themed items thanks to the ALGS Team Shop.
There is a $2 million prize pool at play for the Year 2 Championship. Whichever team wins the event will walk away with $500,000. Viewers can catch all the action later this week on the ALGS Twitch and YouTube channels.
