Gamesfives returns for World Cup special

The hugely popular Xbox 360 Gamesfives tournament will take place on Wednesday, June 23rd at the Barnet Powerleague.

Teams representing all sectors of the industry will compete for the coveted trophy (won by D3P last year) in the morning.

They’ll then set their differences aside for an afternoon of beers, hog roast and, hopefully, a big screen England victory against Slovenia in their last group game (kick off, 15:00).

There will also be a Virtual World Cup competition on EA Sports’ FIFA World Cup 2010 South Africa.

Demand for team places is always extremely high, so if you want to be considered for inclusion, please register as soon as possible at

Xbox UK’s 3PP marketing manager Andy Irving commented: With the World Cup rolling around again this year, football will be at the top of most people’s agenda this summer – and we’re thrilled to bring back the MCV & Xbox 360 Gamesfives Tournament to celebrate this fact.

"The event will be a tighter and more hotly contested affair than previous years, so it’s great that we’re giving teams the chance to relax and enjoy the England vs Slovenia game in the bar straight afterwards. We look forward to seeing you on the pitch and for a few (hopefully) celebratory drinks.”
