It’s been a long and steady month full of tournaments, and as we draw closer to the end of the year, more and more players are emerging from the Fanta Masters league across the Middle East, and we are now heading to the biggest and usually “wildest” qualification tournament of them all: the Saudi Arabia Fanta Masters Qualifiers at Gamers Day 2016
Our first major tournament in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was a memorable event for both PLG and players alike in Riyadh. With over 700 players competing at Gamers Day 2015, topped with celebrity guest matches including Alaa Ibrahim (Dvlzstation) and Tarek Al-Harbi (6AR8O), the Saudi crowd was the biggest we ever witnessed. Starting from numerous qualifiers across McDonald’s KSA stores and University Qualifiers, players from all around the kingdom tested their skills once again at Gamers Day 2015 for a duration of three days, joined by 8 of 2014 Fanta Masters, where 16 players were awarded with brand new PlayStation 4.
Now that we are closing off this brand new season, including a switch to the latest version of EA Sports’ award winning football game – FIFA 17 – we are heading back to Gamers Day, from the 27th to the 29th of October, as always at the Riyadh International Convention & Exhibition Center in Riyadh. We will be crowning 8 players from the kingdom that will fly to the UAE to join an elite amount of FIFA players, a whopping 32 Fanta Gaming Masters from around the region, to compete for the title of Regional Champion and numerous prizes.
