SHEPPARD AIR FORCE BASE, Texas – The U.S. Air Force and Royal Saudi Air Force were pitched in fierce virtual battle at the Airman's Club here March 19, 2022, during a gaming tournament between Airmen in Training representing the international partners.

Two teams from each air force competed in four best-of-three matches in fan-favorite games Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Rocket League, a soccer-style game on steroids where the players are vehicles. The United States team swept the series, 4-0, to win the tournament.

The U.S. team was presented a wooden Texas plaque with a gold-colored video game controller affixed.
