This past Sunday, (November 9th) here at GAFollowers we held our first event ever at Perimeter Mall’s Microsoft Store! A FIFA 15 tournament right in the great city of Atlanta. Over 100 contestants attended and over 400 people came to watch. It was an awesome time and a great turnout. FIFA games started at 7:00pm and never ended! This is our 1st annual FIFA Tournament and we’re expecting next years to be even bigger.
Players traveled from all over the country all to compete for the grand prize; $1,500 in cash. We had great players from New York, Texas, Alabama, North Carolina, Louisiana all putting their skills on the line for the goal at the end. 4th place prize was a FIFA 15 copy and a few items from GAFollowers clothing store. 3rd was an Xbox One, provided by ATL Gamer Society. 2nd, a $500 gift card, and of course the $1,500 for the 1st place winner.
The Final Four hosted:
