Be part of the action as the top EA SPORTS FIFA 10 players in the world face off in the FIFA Interactive World Cup Grand Final.
Since October 2009, over 775,000 FIFA 10 players have been flexing their thumbs and brushing up their skills via PlayStation Network and at Live Qualifier Events around the world.
Now, the 32 top virtual footballers on the planet have landed in the Catalan capital, home to one of the best loved football teams in the world, and are less than 24 hours away from creating their very own piece of sporting history.
Up for grabs is a prize that money cannot buy: for the winner, 20,000 USD awaits as well as the chance to meet footballing royalty at the FIFA World Cup Player Gala 2010 where they will officially be crowned FIFA Interactive World Champion 2010.
This year's field is as strong as ever, featuring Alfonso Ramos Cuevas and Bruce Grannec, winners in 2008 and 2009 respectively, as well as entrants from as far afield as Singapore, Brazil, Australia and Sudan. In total, 22 countries are represented as the players descend on Barcelona's Port Olimpic for the FIFA Interactive World Cup Grand Final.
The event takes place by the beach and is free to enter to spectators who can cheer on their favourite as well as savouring the thrilling atmosphere. Away from the screens, they will be able to enjoy an afternoon of entertainment, from watching champion freestylers to live music and the chance to show off their virtual and real-life skills.
To cap it all, following the Grand Final itself, Groove Armada's Andy Cato will play an exclusive DJ set.
