As the official tournament sponsor for EA SPORTS, our fans can expect to see more and more tournaments giving them opportunities as lucrative cash and prizes.  Previously, we just concluded the EA SPORTS NHL 11 Tournament where the winner, Nick Bodemer, played in an online final game with him winning in a shootout for $12,500!  Listen to how he did so in the NHL 11 Podcast here  or read about his story in the Red Deer Advocate.

Every year the folks at Virgin Gaming give away over $1,000,000 in cash and prizes and we’re pretty excited to be a part of the action as our fans continually look to capitalize on their skills in their favorite sports titles.  From FIFA to Madden and from NHL to Fight Night, expect to see our franchises highlighted throughout the year and make sure you follow the tourney rules to get in.  Read more about Virgin Gaming on their website here

Specific to Fight Night Champion, as mentioned above, the only way to get in is by picking up your copy of the game for either the PS3 or XBOX 360 at GameStop in Canada or the US*.  The qualifying Leaderboard Challenge period goes from March 8th to March 22nd followed by a bracketed elimination tournament which concludes on April 4th.  Make sure you at least get in 25 bouts so you can be entered into a Wildcard draw for a chance to win exciting EA SPORTS prizes.
