The FIFA tournament held by Maldives Development Alliance (MDA) in collaboration with Maldives Unified Gaming (MUG) is going ahead in full swing.
The E-gaming tournament featuring the famous football video game, FIFA 23, began last Saturday at the MDA political centre in Male’. While many youths participated on that day as well, a total of 450 people are taking part in two-man teams.
MDA said the tournament will empower the youth and revive the lost love for e-sports in Maldives. The aim is to encourage Maldivian gamers to represent Maldives in the international arena and win prizes.
“This is the tournament with the largest prize pool of the FIFA Doubles tournament in Maldives this year. I would like to thank Councilor Faaiz for providing this opportunity and Mahzoom, Ziad and Salim for facilitating and endorsing the tournament. The tournament will go on for four or five days,” MDA said.
The tournament offers a cash prize of MVR 30000. MDA has said that the money will be divided between the teams that win first, second and third place.
The party highlighted that the tournament is being conducted with the cooperation of MDA Leader Ahmed Siyam Mohamed.
