iBet to host eSports FIFA 20 Tournament
With the sports world at a standstill, iBet Supreme is looking to provide entertainment while reinforcing the necessary measures needed to fight the global pandemic, COVID-19, as part of its corporate responsibility.
iBet Supreme, in collaboration with Banks DIH Limited, through the Monster Energy Drink brand, will host a FIFA 20 eSports tournament. This will be played online so that participants won’t have to leave their homes, thus adhering to the guidelines governing COVID-19.
“The tournament, League of Champions, will feature 32 participants in 31 games across eight playing days spanning two weeks,” a release from iBet stated.
“It will be open to persons above the age of 18, and the final selection will be done based on information provided during registration. It will be a straight knockout tournament with the winners of the first round advancing to the round of 16, then to the quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final.”
The winner will pocket $50,000 and a case of Monster Energy drinks, while the runner-up will receive $25,000, and the same prizes as the winner. Third place will walk also away with $15,000 and the corresponding prizes.
“While it can be argued that this is the first venture of its kind in Guyana, eSports is a growing industry since it became mainstream around 2010. eSports is now a significant factor in the video game industry, with many game developers actively designing and providing funding for tournaments and other events. iBet Supreme is looking to open a pathway into this industry in Guyana with the inaugural tournament,” iBet added.
For registration and tournament information call 608-7036. Registration will begin on Monday (April 13, 2020) and the first match day will be on Saturday (April 18).
