Event report from Jodie Upton, Sweethaven Retail Team Member
On Saturday 27th August, Sweethaven welcomed gaming legend @Officialmgh through our doors to host the biggest FIFA gaming event in Reigate history. With a rush of people throughout the day there were FIFA tournaments, Virtual Reality demonstrations, raffle prizes and more!
Contenders travelled from across the region to show off their FIFA gaming skills in the bid to win the highly anticipated pre-order of FIFA ’17… and the atmosphere was electric.
Below shows our competitors and @Officialmgh prepping before the big game!
Kick off started at 12 noon with various qualifying rounds and competitors arriving from all over the South East to take on the infamous MGH. With knock-out stages proving who would claim the title of the best-of-the best, tensions were running high and it was game on!
So who won the Sweethaven Championship and got the chance to take MGH himself? None other than our Sweethaven hero, @DezmondBDBC. He put up a strong fight and scored hat tricks over his competition!
Each competitor fought diligently and although they may not have been awarded the title of Champ, they had their own successes and wins throughout the day. Congratulations to our raffle winner, @connormanning15, and a massive thank you to all that came down to visit us for a great day of gaming. Whether you were scoring in FIFA or taking on aliens through virtual reality, the event was a success and there were winners all round!
We can’t wait to see you all again soon! Keep your eyes peeled for our next gaming event coming up in November.
