Business Esports to host FIFA and COD tournaments this November
After the success of Business Esports FIFA 20 tournament in April, we are back and this time with more to offer! Business Esports are hosting a FIFA 20 and Call of Duty tournament this November.
Against the backdrop of uncertainty businesses throughout the country are faced with Business Esports believe its upcoming FIFA 20 and Call of Duty tournaments are the perfect way to offer a retreat from the stresses of the external pressures we are all feeling in these uncertain times. Whilst working in isolation we believe teamwork is crucial and now more than ever companies are prioritising the mental wellbeing of employees. At this time, it’s important for businesses to continue to encourage employees to be mentally stimulated.
The action starts online on the evening of Tuesday 3rd November with 3 game evenings that week and the same the following week should the gamers make the knockout stages. Each participant will take part in the event remotely using their own device. All team members must have access to the same brand of console either an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 for the FIFA 20 tournaments, but the COD 2019 tournament can be cross console.
With charity a huge driver behind Business Fives having raised over £170,000 and counting, entrants will be encouraged to fundraise as much as they can for their chosen charity and the winner will bag themselves a donation of 10% of all revenue and bragging rights, of course. April’s champions Drummond Central who won a £250 donation for North East Air Ambulance said: “We really loved participating in this event during lockdown and putting our years of FIFA experience to use in order to raise money for a fantastic cause”.
For the FIFA Tournament teams of four take part and play together as a team, with each player playing a member of the rival once with the aggregate scoreline of all the matches deciding the result. For Call of Duty teams of 4 will play a 15-minute death match against a rival team, with 3 points awarded for a win, 1 for a draw and 0 for the losing team. All the rules for the tournaments can be found here.
Alongside making a charitable impact, these tournaments offer an opportunity to meet new people and develop existing connections in a socially distant manner. All companies taking part will have their presence branded and additional marketing exposure will be available through various sponsorship packages associated with Business Esports events.
Business Fives and Business Esports founder, John McClarey, is looking forward to the upcoming November events. He said “We thoroughly enjoyed putting on our Esports events at the peak of lockdown in April and with restrictions set to affect how teams interact for the next 6 months we’re looking forward to giving our clients the opportunity to bond in a competitive environment. We were really pleased with how Business Esports has been embraced by the business community and looking forward to providing charities with some much needed support during these testing times.”
