Gfinity and Sweetpatch TV Partnership
After highly successful live events and tournaments in the world of Call of Duty, Gfinity have decided to expand its horizons and provide a platform for the best FIFA 14 players around to test their mettle. By partnering with us here at Sweetpatch.TV, Gfinity will receive our guidance and support that will help them to deliver an excellent FIFA gaming experience for all competitive FIFA gamers.
The event kicked off today with an open online qualification tournament and saw 256 top players competing online in 2 brackets for a top prize of £500 per bracket winner, on the Xbox 360 version of the game.
The 8 semi-finalists from the 2 tournaments will now be invited to the Gfinity studio to compete in the inaugural Gfinity FIFA LAN in early 2014 and do battle for a substantial prize pot of £2,500 and the right to call themselves the first FIFA Champion. This will take place on the Xbox One console.
