FIFA 15 Tournament | 19 September 2015

FIFA 16_07

How about we say goodbye to FIFA 15 with one last tournament? And how about we do so by giving you an opportunity to win access to one of MWEB GameZone’s epic launch events – this time for FIFA 16? And how about we mention that at said event, there will be two PlayStation 4s up for grabs? And then to top it all we also let you know that while we’re hosting an event for the ‘Golden Ticket’, our friends (yes, we can call them that) at Braccianos e-Sports Lounge and Games On Gaming Lounge will be doing exactly the same thing?

Sounds pretty great doesn’t it?

So join us at Trenchtown on 19 September 2015 and say farewell to FIFA 15 while preparing for FIFA 16. If you are based in the northern suburbs, you can head to Braccianos where they will also be hosting a qualifying tournament, and if you find Rondebosch an easier location for you, then Games On is the place to be. All venues will be offering the golden ticket to the FIFA 16 launch, and the R250 voucher, but each venue will also be offering their own additional prizes, so check with each to find out more.

The winning players from each venue will then face each other at the FIFA 16 launch at the MWEB offices in Parow on Friday 25 September (kicking off at 6pm), where there will be more up for grabs for the winner, plus the usual selection of random prizes that include the aforementioned PlayStation 4s.
