UGC Community Fundraiser

United Gaming Clans (UGC) is proud to announce an experiment in competitive TF2. Over the next several months we will organize a community donation drive in which 100% of proceeds will be directly reinvested into the game in the form of cash prizes. Since this is our first attempt we are only supporting NA Platinum Highlander division. If this effort is a success we will expand to other geographies, divisions and formats in the future.

If you would like to donate please visit our donation site powered by GoFundMe.com
