2upGamers Trenchtown Gaming Tournament | FIFA 13 Pre-Registration

game day FB COVER

We’ve opened pre-registrations for the FIFA 13 1v1 at the 2upGamers Trenchtown Gaming Tournament happening on Saturday 1 June. Why pre-register? Because it helps us better prepare.

The R50 registration fee is payable on the day, so all you need to do is pitch up at 11am and we’ll take your money, mark you off and start letting you size up your competition.

Registration is still available on the day, but please note that at 11:30am we would like to close registrations so the gaming can get going.

Registration form is below, but we’ll make you read some details first.

The Details:

  • Date:  Saturday 1 June 2013
  • Time:  11am to 11:30am – Registration.  12pm until finished – Tournament
  • Where:  Trenchtown, 92 Station Road, Observatory, Cape Town
  • What:  Black Ops 2 2v2 SnD on Xbox 360 and FIFA 13 1v1 on Xbox 360 and PS3
  • Cost:  R50 Registration, or R80 for Registration with a Margarita Pizza

Please note, that due to the fact that alcohol is served in the venue, all players under 18 years old will need a guardian’s letter of consent, and the players will be marked on the day to avoid any confusion when served.  The letter of consent is available on request.

We will be operating a ‘Home and Away’ style tournament, over both Xbox 360 and PS3.  The tournament will be single elimination with each round consisting of one game on each platform, with the highest aggregate score going into the next round.  If the aggregate scores are a draw at full time after the second leg, players will play extra-time, and if needed, penalties will decide the winner.

Please feel free to bring your own controller if you would like.   Controllers will be available at the event.
