Fans from Across the Region Are Invited to Compete for All-Expenses-Paid Trip for Two to be guests at the FIFA Interactive World Cup Grand Final in Brazil.
MIAMI (February 26, 2014) – The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) today announced the CONCACAF Interactive 2014 (#CI14), a competition in which sports fans and gamers from across the region will compete for the title of CONCACAF Interactive Champion, as well as an all-expenses-paid trip for two to be guests at the FIFA Interactive World Cup (FIWC) Grand Final 2014 this summer in Rio de Janeiro.
This latest addition to the CONCACAF Interactive brand comes on the heels of the positive response and popularity of the CONCACAF Interactive Gold Cup 2013 (#CIGC13). The FIWC Grand Final identifies top gamers and brings them together at the world’s stage, set to be disputed alongside the most followed sporting event on the planet -- the FIFA World Cup.
“We are pleased to introduce yet another CONCACAF interactive initiative designed for fans around our region,” said CONCACAF General Secretary Enrique Sanz. “Coming off the successful CONCACAF Interactive Gold Cup, we understand that the video gaming sector presents a new and interesting opportunity for fans in our region to gain even closer access to the sport we all love.”
Fans from all CONCACAF Member Associations will have the opportunity to represent their country and play for the chance to be crowned CONCACAF Interactive Champion. The six finalists emerging from the online qualifiers will compete against each other in the #CI14 Hexagonal Final, to crown the Confederation champion.
Eligible fans from around the globe will be able to participate in #CI14, as long as they have legal ties to the CONCACAF countries they would like to represent. This online tournament will be held through FIFA Interactive World Cup 2014 (FIWC14) Season 6 (March 1 – April 1) via EA SPORTS™ FIFA14 on the PlayStation®3. Interested individuals will be required to register at www.CONCACAFInteractive.com, allowing the tracking of their progress through a rating system provided by EA SPORTS™.
