Now Bidstack is looking to unearth the world's best virtual manager and give them the opportunity to experience real life football management. The Football Manager gamers will compete at Insomnia Gaming Festival 2018 at the NEC Arena in Birmingham on March 31st for a £25,000 prize plus a very unique opportunity.
Let me say this again; there is a £25,000 cash prize!
But there's more...
Thanks to the good people at Norwich City Football Club and the superb Community Sports Foundation, the winner of this game changing eSport tournament will be up and close with the stars, tactics and behind the scenes action in the upcoming Norwich City Legends vs. Inter Forever charity match on May 20th, at Carrow Road.
Celebrating Norwich’s 25th anniversary of their historic European Cup Run, where the Norfolk side famously dispatched German giants Bayern Munich before being toppled themselves by eventual winners Inter Milan, the match will see the return of legends from both Clubs.
World Cup winning Marco Materazzi, goalkeeping legends Francesco Toldo and Bryan Gunn, as well as one of the great right backs of all time - Javier Zanetti, are just some of the names already confirmed.
Further details of the match taking place on May 20th, can be found here.
A first of its kind eSports competition with a once in a life time prize.
James Draper CEO of Bidstack says:
“We’ve created this tournament to unearth the best manager in the virtual world - and then bring that person into the real world of football management. We wanted to create a new Esports Tournament to prove to the market Esports skills are transferable.”
