Think you have what it takes to claim the FIFA 18 crown?

Football fans in Dubai looking to capitalise on their gaming skills during the World Cup can now take part in a football video game challenge. The grand prize up for grabs? A cool Dhs50,000.

Taking place from now until Saturday, July 14 (as part of the Dubai Summer Surprises), gamers can head down to both City Centre Mirdif or Mall of the Emirates to square off against other fans in EA Sports FIFA 18 in purpose-built gaming zones set up at both malls.

The zones can each accommodate 26 players simultaneously and there are daily prizes up for grabs including Dhs1,000 mall gift cards, and the chance to take on gaming influencers for bonus prizes.

So if you think you have what it takes to nab that Dhs50,000 grand prize, what are you waiting for? All those hours spent wearing down your thumbs practicing virtual free kicks on the PlayStation might finally pay off…
