Fancy $20,000? ‘Course you do, read on…
Every year PlayStation, EA and FIFA host the FIFA Interactive World Cup (FIWC). This tournament sees gamers duke it out on the latest EA SPORTS FIFA title to determine which player is the greatest in the world. The prize? $20,000 USD and an invite to the FIFA Ballon d’Or Gala 2012.
This year there’s 2 ways to get started in the competition. First, you can try your luck competing in online matches, using EA SPORTS FIFA 12 and a PS3. The second is by participating in a Live Qualifier event.
At a Live Qualifier you’ll be pitted against 32 fellow FIFA players in a knock-out tournament. Reach the final fixture of the Live Qualifier tournament and you go through to the UK FIWC Final. Win the UK final and we’ll fly you out to NYC to face finalists from the rest of the world. Beat them all and the $20K is all yours!
