Before you all go off to the holiday season (and eat drink, be merry and practise FIFA 13 of course), our partners at Multiplay UK thought they would give you some food for thought from the Multiplay eSports department!
2013 is going to be amazing, with some of the biggest eSports tournaments in the UK ever! insomnia48 will host loads of awesome tournaments as usual, including the better than ever FIFA 13 Pro 1v1 Tournament.
FIFA 13 1v1 – £1,000+ (Xbox 360)
FIFA 13 is probably one of the most played games in the UK, and everyone knows somebody that thinks they could take on the world. Now here is your chance to prove you are the best with a prize pool that could possibly hit £2,000 with the 64 player cap! It’s not every day you can win that sort of money playing FIFA.
If you like the sound of one of these tournaments next year, then make sure you take advantage of the Early Bird offer (20% off for BYOC attendees!) by visiting the i48 tickets page and buying yours now! FIFA 13 is playable on a BYOC ticket, but only requires at least a TUP (Turn up and play) ticket to take part. Sign ups will open in the new year, so keep an eye out for that!
insomnia48 (i48) runs from 22nd March to 25th March 2013 at the Telford International Centre and your Sweetpatch TV team will be there running all the FIFA 13 activity for you.
So, what is the Insomnia Gaming Festival, or iSeries as it’s known? Well, fundamentally Insomnia is a gaming event for all ages, where gamers and industry leaders alike come together to celebrate games in all their forms.
To find out about the venue, head over to the Venue Information Page!
For many gamers in the UK, and indeed Europe and beyond, the Insomnia LAN is now a British institution and staple part of the gaming calendar, with the event playing host to some of the biggest eSports tournaments in Europe, and annual host of the UK qualifiers for the World Cyber Games.
The event, held 3 times a year at The International Centre in Telford, accommodates over 3000 gamers for 5 days; it’s certainly grown from it’s humble beginnings of no more than 50 all playing off one 10mb switch!
