Vodacom World eFootball details
The Vodacom World eFootball tournament series is back in action, with the final two qualifiers taking place this month. You can register for free on the tournament’s Maingaming page, and there are even some cash prizes up for grabs in one of the upcoming qualifiers.
The tournament has moved to an online format due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Lockdown restrictions. 16 players have already qualified for the grand finals. The two remaining qualifiers will take place on the following dates.
- Qualifier 3: 6 to 9 August 2020 (128 players)
- Last chance qualifier: 13 August (32 players)
In Qualifier 3, there will be a nice cash prize pool, as well as qualification into the grand finals to compete for.
The prize pool distribution for Qualifier 3 is:
- 1st Place: R3,000
- 2nd Place: R750
- 3rd Place: R500
The last chance qualifier does not seem to feature a prize pool.
Two Wild Card entries still need to be selected by Vodacom, as well to round out the participants of the grand finals. The Vodacom World eFootball grand finals will take place from 18 to 22 August, with a massive prize pool up for grabs.
The prize pool distribution is:
- 1st Place: R20,000
- 2nd Place: R4,000
- 3rd Place: R1,250
The Vodacom World eFootball tournament is played on PS4 with FIFA20. Therefore, you need to own the game, and an active PS+ subscription to participate. Further, Maingaming notes you need a “strong internet connection” to enter the tournament.
