image So you think you are the best in the country at FIFA 2008? Do you want to receive your national colours and stand in line to represent South Africa at the World Cyber Games later this year?

If so then I hope you live in Gauteng as the national FIFA 2008 championships will be held at Sandton City Fountain court on the 28th, 29th and 30th of March.

They are expecting 512 participants to turn up to compete for the title of national champion to be decided over 3 days at Sandton using the PlayStation 3 console.

You can either just rock up and play on the day or rather if you are truly serious head on over to www.agasa.co.za and sign up for the event.

Sandton City is about 5 minutes walk from my offices so I will be signing up just for the fun of it.

For more information check the official FIFA website

Let’s show EA how good we really are and convince them that we need to go to the WCG to represent our country.

On a side note you would think that EA would be sending out press releases about this so that I didn’t have to stumble across it while browsing the local forums…

    Whoo Hoo! PS3’s

    Cool, I will be attending, haven’t played FIFA much, but should be fun.

    Pity it isn’t Pro Evo. These type of events make one want to defect…mmm 🙂 Good job EA South Africa. Once again.

  • NoMaD

    One has to admit that the Fifa Interactive World Cup would be quite strange if they played Pro Evo 🙂

    It’s great to see EA doing something like this.

  • Please note that the event to be held on 28th, 29th and 30th of March 2008 is neither the National Championships, nor does it qualify players for any national colours.

    Only Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) is the officially recognised national controlling body for Computer Games in South Africa, and as such only Mind Sports South Africa may issue National Colours for Computer Gaming and only the MSSA’s events are official national championships.

    The event in question is merely a publicity event staged by ELECTRONIC ARTS and one of our member clubs.

    Should you require any additional information please contact the writer.
