From March to April 2016, Etisalat, Power League Gaming and EA Sports launched a brand new limited time only competition, by playing EA Sports FIFA 16 live with the top gaming communities across the UAE: Etisalat Super Cup 16.
With over thousands of participants in each qualifier of the month of March and April competing, only a selected few players managed to emerge victorious from the competition, and a skilled list of 256 UAE players from over 20 different nationalities reached the Grand Finals of the Etisalat Super Cup 16 at Mall of the Emirates on the 15th and 16th of April 2016.
And so after 1200 different EA Sports FIFA 16 matches, we advanced on the 16th of April, with the best 32 FIFA players competing for the top 3 spots and win a trip to see Manchester City play live at the Etihad Stadium, in Manchester, England. So congratulations to Omar Adel, Haidar Ezzat and Mohamad Nashashibi, which will get to see one heck of a football match in England, thanks to Etisalat.
We hope to make this tournament an annual thing, starting with the Etisalat Super Cup 17 in the 2017 season in partnership with Etisalat.
