Daniel “Dox” Osemeudiame from Sinister5 plans to break the Guinness World Record for the “Longest videogame marathon on a football (soccer) game” this week, 14 May 2020.


Here’s what you need to know about Daniel’s attempt, and how you can join in to support and cheer him on.

The Guinness World Record attempt

First up, you can watch it all take place on Daniel’s channel (Doxose). The stream kicks off on 14th May at 10:00 SAST, and since the current record is held by Christopher Cook who played FIFA 15 for 48 hours, 49 minutes and 41 seconds back in 2014, the stream will last at least until 16th May.


You can also follow him on Twitter, or use the hashtag #doxworldrecord to show your support, and follow TechPlusEsports on Instagram. 


The reference number for his attempt is: 190717080225ivmo


We spoke to Daniel “Dox” Osemeudiame about his plans in March, where he explained that:


“I have the aim of lifting the African e-sports scene and I want people to understand that esports isn’t all about going out to compete in tournaments. We need people to encourage our gamers and streamers which is why I will be playing FIFA for the next 4 days non stop and I have waited since 2014 to do this.


I will also be playing some Nigerian celebrities such as DrSid and esport owners in Nigeria and I plan on playing so many friendly matches with good south African pro gamers. To my fans home and abroad I want to let you I don’t intend disappointing and I am coming with an x-factor, am coming with something different.”


Proceeds of the event will go towards providing COVID-19 support across Africa.
