We’re collaborating with League One football team, Northampton Town F.C. to bring you the Northampton FC Cup: two FIFA 21 tournaments for PlayStation and Xbox players!

Northampton Town FC play in the third tier of English football. Northampton Town have expressed their intentions to enter the esports landscape, and alongside our partners, For G4mer Sake, we’re incredibly excited to support their entry into the space!

Read on to find out how you can participate in next week’s Northampton F.C. Cup!

Northampton F.C. Cup: What you need to know!

Date: Thursday 18 February, 2021 Time: 17:30 (GMT) Maximum participants: 32 in each PlayStation and Xbox tournament

If you want to join, you must have an IGGalaxy account. Once you’ve created your account, you’ll have to add your PSN or Xbox gamertag to your profile.

To join, simply:

  1. log in to your IGGalaxy account;
  2. use the filter to search for FIFA 21 tournaments and select Europe as the region;
  3. click on to the tournament and press the “Join button”.

Once you’re in, it’s important to know exactly how IGGalaxy esports tournaments work. All tournaments are automated; each round will require you to “ready up” within the first 15 minutes and submit the results, with screenshot evidence, before the next round begins.

Failure to perform any of these actions will result in a disqualification and — we hate to say it — a forfeiture of any rewards for participating in the event.

You can check out our guide to competing in IGGalaxy tournaments or you can view these in the “Rules” section of the tournament.

You’ll want your crypto rewards, too!

All players receive rewards depending on their final placement 24 hours after the tournament has concluded — you must have an IGWallet to receive these rewards, though!

Are you the ultimate competitive gamer?!

If there’s nothing you love more than esports, then IGGalaxy is the place for you!
