Virtual Realms Arcade Football Tournament

We are partnering with Virtual Realms Arcade in Canal Walk Shopping Centre to bring Cape Town their next FIFA 19 tournament. The tournament will be hosted on 10 August 2019 and will feature a cash prize pool of R3,750.

Competitors will be able to compete on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One with the cash-winning players being determined in a home and away playoff. There is a player cap of 32 per platform (a total of 64 players), so it is highly recommended that you pre-register. Remember that pre-registering only guarantees your space until 10:30am on the day, at which point spots will be allocated to walk-ins. Walk-ins will be allowed to access remaining spots on a first come, first served basis.

Entry fee for the FIFA 19 tournament is R100 per player. Included in the entry fee is a 15 minute session on the virtual reality gear at the venue. For an extra R100 players can have unlimited access to the virtual reality for the day.

All necessary equipment will be supplied but you may bring along your own controller if you prefer.

Registrations

PLEASE NOTE: We have now closed pre-registration for this tournament. Walk-ins will be accepted if spots are still available after pre-registered player check-in closes. Next, opportunities will be offered to pre-registered waiting list players, and finally walk-ins. Should you choose to walk-in, the opportunity will be opened after 10:30 to replace pre-registered players.

  • Please note that by registering you agree to the ‘House Rules and ‘Terms and Conditions’ set out below.
  • Contact cell numbers will allow us to make contact with missing players on the day and will not be made public.
  • If you have any queries please email: info@zombiegamer.co.za
  • A registration confirmation email may take up to 24 hours to be sent out. If after that time you have not been confirmed, please feel free to email us.

Zombiegamer operates a ‘fair play’ policy. No cheating, abusive language (or abusive actions to anyone at all) and activity deemed unacceptable to an enjoyable, but competitive tournament, will be tolerated. The Admin or Referees decision is final. Anyone who acts in a way not deemed in good spirit or clearly breaking policies will be immediately disqualified from the tournament. The player identification holders and lanyards are the property of Zombiegamer and are to be returned at the end of player participation in the event. Additional terms and conditions will be made available on www.zombiegamer.co.za. By signing this you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.

Please note that we will no longer delay the start of events indefinitely. Should you not arrive on time and have not pre-registered, you can not participate. Should you pre-register and arrive late for your scheduled match (attempts to accommodate will be made) your opponent will be issued with a default win. Should that be in the loser’s bracket, you will be eliminated.

Registration fees are non-refundable if you do not attend on the day. Players only qualify for a refund of their registration fee if we are notified of non-attendance at least 48 hours prior to the day of the event.
