Have you ever wondered what the day-to-day life of an FIWC champion is like? How do they spend their time when they’re not playing EA SPORTS FIFA™? Where do they hang out and what do their friends think of their PlayStation football skills? FIFA.com travelled to Copenhagen – home of reigning FIWC champion August Rosenmeier – to answer these questions and more.
Click on the “YouTube” logo in the bottom right of the video above to watch the mini-documentary on August Rosenmeier, which includes meeting up with, and interviewing, some of his friends at their local hangout, biking around the Danish capital and attending football practice where Rosenmeier spends five nights a week training and captaining his local club team, B1908.
Since I became the FIWC world champion in Rio, my life has changed in an even more positive way.
says August, who claimed his first FIWC title earlier this year in Rio de Janeiro in front of Brazilian legend Ronaldo during the actual 2014 FIFA World Cup™! The 18-year old Dane is keeping a cool head despite the increased pressure and fame that has come with becoming the best EA SPORTS™ FIFA player on the planet.
I may have won the 20,000 dollars, but I’m still riding on my good bicycle.
Champion on the PS3, captain on the real pitch
So just how good are the current interactive world champion’s real-world football skills?
He’s a perfect captain
says August’s coach at local club B1908,
He’s got it all, he’s got the responsibility, the social side and he has the winner mentality.
After football practice, August invited FIFA.com into his home near the harbour, where they got to see the actual place where he has spent so much time training to become the best virtual footballer in the world. Of course, no visit to an FIWC champion’s home would be complete without a tour of their impressive trophy cabinet! In FIFA.com‘s video you can check out August’s trophies and his impressive adidas sneaker collection – another of his passionate hobbies.
