Developers take on publishers, retailers, journalists and more on Thursday, May 21st

MCV’s games industry five-a-side returns next month

The Games 5s five-a-side tournament is back on May 21st after its successful revival last year.

The contest will pitch teams from publishers, developers, retailers, media and elsewhere in the games business against each other.

Last year, Testology walked home with the winner’s cup – have you got what it takes to beat them?

They’re back to defend their title, with rival teams brave enough to go up against them including Rockstar Games, Exertis UK, Sports Interactive, Gameloft and Xbox.

We’ll have nearly another 20 teams of seven (five players and two subs) competing on the day.

Games 5s takes place on Thursday, May 21st at Barnet Power League football grounds in North London.

Kickoff is at midday on the day (registration at 11am) followed by the awards ceremony, a barbecue and after-party in the bar.

It costs £499 per team to take part – that includes entry to the day’s competition for a team of up to seven players, soft drinks during the day and food after the tournament, plus drinks tokens to redeem at the bar.

Winners have a chance of taking home champions’ silverware – but most importantly the bragging rights of having beaten your peers at the beautiful game.

Contact Jess Farnan on or call her on 01992 535 646 to book your place.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available – contact Conor Tallon on or or call 01992 535 647 to find out more.
