Registrations for the #3Teams1City Super Challenge FIFA 20 tournament series, presented by EsportSA, are now open.
The unique tournament features athletes from three of Cape Town’s top sports teams who are gearing up to take on their fans in a digital arena.
The DHL Stormers, Cape Cobras and Cape Town City FC are each hosting a FIFA 20 esports challenge. Each team challenge will consist of four qualifying rounds. The top two from each qualifier will progress to the quarterfinals, semifinals, and ultimately the finals, which will see the teams’ FIFA 20 Esports Super Challenge champions crowned.
Players can choose to compete in any of the qualifiers (i.e. the DHL Stormers, Cape Cobras, and/or Cape Town City FC), thus increasing their chances of qualification. The top eight players from each of the teams’ qualifying rounds will represent their respective teams in the #3Teams1City Super Challenge group stages.
A total of 24 players will be drawn into four groups, with the top two finishers in each group progressing to the quarterfinals knock-out round.
The #3Teams1City Super Challenge kicks off on Saturday 20 June, at 14h00, with the first qualifier for the DHL Stormers Esports Challenge. The Cape Cobras Esports Challenge qualifiers kicks off on Sunday 21 June at 14h00, while CT City FC’s Citizens challenge kicks off on Saturday 27 June at 14h00. The tournament will continue until the Super Challenge finals on 24 August.
The #3Teams1City Super Challenge will be played on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The combined cash prize pool is currently at R10,000, with prizes to the value of R200,000 up for grabs. Other prizes (both for players finishing top of their qualifiers, as well as winners of random draws) include online shopping vouchers from SportSA, hampers from BLK, UMBRO and Six Gun Grill, as well as Coca-Cola and Powerade products, and signed team merchandise. Additional prizes will be announced as the series gathers pace.
