As you probably know, this summer is host to the Fifa 2014 World Cup, which will be enjoyed by people all over the world. So, with this in mind, we thought we would run our own tournament to celebrate ‘Ace of Spades’ style!
This is a great opportunity for teams to get involved in a competitive 4 v 4 tournament and battle for glory……and prizes of course. The theme/style will be designed to complement the summer of football, accompanied by live stream coverage provided by our regular Twitch hosts.
Interested? Ready to have fun and pit your skills against the world alongside your friends? Then visit our event details page here and get the Intel on the event.
Teams will be drawn live on our Twitch channel at a later specified date, and teams drawn will be given a ‘country’ that is actually taking part in the 2014 Fifa World Cup. To add to the theme of the tournament we’ll decide upon the groups with the draw.
Prizes for the very top teams will include exclusive Deuce Box Heads, free Ace of Spades game copies, and Amazon vouchers.
Signups are now open at our Events page, and will close on Friday 13th June.
We hope to see as many teams as possible, so sign up early to avoid disappointment.
