The FIFA Interactive World Cup 2009 North American Qualifiers
There are two ways to participate in the North American Qualifier of the FIWC 2009 and compete for a place at the global grand final in Barcelona in May. The first route for FIFA Soccer 09 and PLAYSTATION 3 gamers across the US is to compete in an online bracket to challenge for two places in the National Final.
If you’re not online or just want to try your luck face-to-face with hundreds of other gamers you can register and reserve a place to compete in the live Conference Final, or simply turn up on the day, in one of two Conference Finals on the East and West coast of the US.
Be warned though both pre-registered places and walk-up places are on a first-come-first-served basis. For more information, click on the ‘Tournament Structure’ or the ‘How to Register’ link above.
Basically there are two ways where you can join and play. The first being you can register online and participate in an online tournament over the PlayStation 3 network, OR, you can actually play in one of the LIVE conference finals which are taking place in Los Angeles, CA and in Baltimore, MD. If you are interesting in registering or even getting more info in either of those two, click the banner above and it will bring you to the “How to Register” page where there is more information about the event.
