FIFA 17 2v2 Tournament 16 July 2017

We will be hosting – in conjunction with ACGL – a 2v2 FIFA 17 tournament on 16 July 2017 at the MWEB offices in Cape Town.

The tournament will be a mirror event to the Maingaming event at the Nexus in Gauteng on the same day.

For the event, all necessary equipment will be supplied but you are requested to bring along your own controller.

The FIFA 17 tournament will be run on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The tournament will be a double elimination on your preferred platform with the top two per platform playing in a home and away knockout to determine final placings.

Entry fee for the FIFA 17 tournament is R100 per player (R200 per team) if paid and booked by close of business on 14 July 2017, or R125 per player (R250 per team) if paid on the day.

Registrations are now open. Please note that we will be soft capping entries to 32 teams (16 teams per platform). Also, please note that your registration will only be secured on payment of the registration fee. Payment guarantees your spot in the tournament. All non-paid pre-registrations will no longer guarantee you a spot at the event. All non-paid pre-registrations and walk-ins will be accepted on a first come, first served basis on the day.
