EA SPORTS Challenge Series

Do your friends literally hate to play you in a game of Madden? Do you constantly find yourself winning a free lunch from your mates over a quick FIFA match? Does it actually disappoint you when you don’t win by at least 5 goals in a game of NHL? Then you’re probably what we would call a “competitive EA SPORTS gamer.” That might even be putting it lightly for some of you. If you fancy yourself a good NHL 12, Madden NFL 12, or FIFA 12 gamer, then perhaps it’s time to put your reputation on the line for some serious cash.

EA SPORTS is proud to host the EA SPORTS Challenge Series powered by Virgin Gaming, which will gather the best NHL 12, FIFA 12, and Madden NFL 12 players in the world to battle it out in New York City for $1 million dollars in cash prizes! The good news is the qualifier round has been extended to April 22nd. There are also multiple ways to enter:

·         Win 6 times online for the small entry fee of $10, and you automatically earn a seat at the $1M finals in New York City.

·         Buy yourself a seat in the NYC finals for $448 dollars. (Although this might sound expensive for some of you, remember that you only have to win one game in the finals to be in the money.)

However you choose to be a part of the biggest tournament in EA SPORTS gaming, you can do so by joining HERE. You can also check out a complete breakdown of the prizing by going HERE.

So what are you waiting for? You know you’re good. Your friends know you’re good. All those noobs you’ve taken to proverbial school online know you’re good. So now it’s time to put your pride on the line for a chance at big money! If that’s not incentive enough for you, there will also be LIVE performances by Just Blaze and Jadakiss, a Tailgate Party on the rooftop throughout the entire day and demoing of new EA SPORTS DLC titles like UEFA EURO 2012 and SSX!
