Dan Goldenberg, executive director of CODE, said: “Space Force isn't even a year old so this may have been their very first win in anything competitive against any of the other services.

"So it's a heck of a great way to start off their history.”

He previously said: “We are thrilled to have the United States and the United Kingdom militaries come together to compete in the CODE Bowl.

“This will be the first time all military branches with eSports teams have come together for a spirited competition that also raises awareness for veteran employment, and we couldn’t be more excited.”

The proceeds will go towards helping veterans find jobs.

CODE, a non-profit organisation was launched by Activision Blizzard.
