Developers, publishers retailers and media compete for winner's cup and bragging rights

Game industry five-a-side championship returns on May 21st

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

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

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

We already have teams signed up to play – with over 20 teams of seven (five players and two subs) expected.

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

Kick off is at midday (registration 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 drink during the day, food after the tournament, plus drinks tokens to redeem at the bar.

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

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

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