The FA has recently held the Emirates FA Cup Video game tournament at Wembley Stadium.

The FA hosted the inaugural Emirates FA Cup gaming tournament, with video game fans from across the world invited to compete for glory at Wembley Stadium connected by EE. 

Early rounds took place in iconic locations in the stadium such as The Royal Box, the changing rooms and the players’ tunnel, with the two finalists playing the virtual final using Wembley Stadium’s 82 foot screens as they sat in the centre circle. 

Gamers of varying ability descended upon Wembley Stadium as the home of football transforms into an epic gaming colosseum set to turn heads and sweat palms in equal measure. 

The winner’s adventure replicated that of this year’s Emirates FA Cup finalists, as they navigated the early potential banana skins through to the tougher tests of the latter stages, for the chance to play on the Wembley Stadium pitch. The victor is set to receive a VIP experience at The Emirates FA Cup Final, as well as the prestige of being the inaugural champion.
