The registrations for this year's FIFA tournament at the Electronics & Gaming Expo have opened.

Up for grabs this year in the virtual football tournament is a cash prize pool of R10,000. Players must choose a heat and preferred platform that suits them but the top two per platform per heat will need to be back on Sunday to compete for the cash in the Championship Playoffs. There is a 16-player cap per heat per platform with a total of four heats.

Heats will be a group phase (four players per group) with top two proceeding to playoffs. The top two players will return on Sunday and participate in a home and away (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) single elimination playoff. Seeding will be determined by placement in heats.

You can register now for your preferred heat and platform. Please note that to register, you will need to create a (free) profile on the site. To secure your spot, please ensure your pre-purchase your EGE 2018 day pass and send us a photo (to [email protected]) to confirm. While walk-ins will be accepted, that will be given in order of preference to confirmed pre-registered players, unconfirmed pre-registered players and then walk-ins. This will also be dependent on whether the 16-player cap per platform has been hit.

  • 1st Place: R5,000
