Boro fan Danny Taylor is up against Huddersfield Town supporter Jordan Croft in the first round of the FIFA 20 Ultimate Quaran-Team tournament this evening.
Boro are one of 128 clubs from around the world who will be represented in the e-sports competition, with the first wave of games having already taken place on Sunday.
Ultimate Quaran-Team is the brainchild of Leyton Orient, who invited teams from across the globe to come together to contest FIFA 20 matches in the absence of regular football.
Some clubs will be represented by first team players and others by fans on the popular video game platform.
And it's for a good cause, with £50,000 already raised to support struggling EFL clubs as well as mental health charity Mind and the World Health Organisation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fundraiser via a JustGiving page.
Danny will take to the virtual field as Boro from 7pm on Monday night to face The Terriers.
