Firstly, apologies for our longest ever leave of absence in the 15 year life of the site. I am currently undertaking improvements to my house which resulted in our Internet being offline and I have just been so busy with work and the house I have not been able to grab time to jump on a computer to post news. I’ve been trying to keep our social media activity up so hope you haven’t missed us too much and apologies for the break in service.
Secondly, from October 2014 to April 2015, millions of gamers will try to claim one of the available qualification seats for the Grand Final. At the Grand Final, reigning champion August Rosenmeier, 16 online qualifiers and 3 Live Event winners will try to become the world champion of EA SPORTS™ FIFA 15.
