FIWC veterans weigh in

It takes a lot of focus and concentration to make it to the Grand Final.

UK finalist George Tsirita told A Grand Finalist at Madrid 2013, Tsirita will be hoping to secure his second appearance at a Grand Final by winning at the Bridge.

Tassal Rushan, a Grand Finalist at Dubai 2012, is focused and ready for 5 March.

I am walking into it expecting to win it but it’s knockout matches from the start, so anything is possible.

Knockout matches to decide winner

The eight finalists will meet at Chelsea for a single day of tough competition. The pressure will be on from the very first minute. A single loss will knock a player out of the tournament, while a win moves them through to the next knockout match. All matches will be played with EA SPORTS™ FIFA 15 on the PlayStation®4.

Newcomers eager to upset favourites

Nathan Riches, a football coach at Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club, will be hoping to translate his real football experience into success on the virtual pitch.

I’ve never been to a live gaming event and no one knows who I am. I believe I can beat anyone there if I am consistent on the day.

Special guest

Chelsea Defender and Spain international Cesar “Dave” Azpilicueta will be joining the FIWC at Stamford Bridge to watch the UK Live Event Qualifier!
