If you are pretty nifty at FIFA then you could lift the FA Cup at Wembley later this year.
The Emirates FA Cup gaming tournament, Every Gamer’s Adventure, which yes is its actual name and very ridiculous, takes place on May 6th and mimics the format of the real FA cup. A player will be selected for every team that makes it to the third round of the proper competition, and then on the day of the finals the competition will play out in the FA cup format.
Matches will take place in all the iconic Wembley locations, from the Royal Box to the changing rooms and the players’ tunnel, although unfortunately on top of the arch seems to be out of the question.
The winner will climb the famous steps and lift the FA cup at Wembley, and will also receive a VIP package for the FA Cup final.
"We're incredibly excited to announce the return of Every Gamer’s Adventure to Wembley Stadium in 2017,” said Lucy Roberts-Hartley, The Emirates FA Cup Senior Brand Manager. “Last year’s tournament was action-packed and saw the likes of Bury FC reach the Quarterfinals, showcasing - much like the real Emirates FA Cup - that truly anything can happen. We want to invite gamers from across the world to register for a chance to take part and descend on the home of football, raising the stakes even higher in 2017 to see if anyone else can cause an almighty Emirates FA Cup upset."
