The FA is excited to announce that the much-anticipated Emirates FA Cup gaming tournament ‘Every Gamer’s Adventure’, is returning for 2017.
FIFA ‘17 players of all abilities from across the world are invited to compete for a chance to lift the famous trophy at Wembley Stadium connected by EE on Saturday 6 May 2017.
The one-day e-sports tournament replicates the format of the real Emirates FA Cup, with one player selected at random to represent each club from this year’s Third Round onwards.
Early rounds will take place in iconic locations in the stadium such as the players’ tunnel and the changing rooms, in a gaming event unlike any other!
The eventual winner’s adventure will culminate with the famous 107 step climb from the pitch up to the Royal Box where they will lift the Emirates FA Cup and then receive a VIP experience at the cup final itself on Saturday 27 May.
In 2016, at the inaugural Every Gamer’s Adventure, after a staggering 540 minutes of play across the competition, Chelsea and their representative Harris Riaz finally won the tournament with a thrilling 3-1 win over Southampton in the centre circle at Wembley.
Players can enter via www.EveryGamersAdventure.com, where they will be entered into a ballot and subsequently selected at random to be one of the 64 names in the third round draw.
Applications are now open and will close on Friday 10 March with those selected in the ballot notified by Friday 24 March.
