Special Effect has invited teams from across the games industry to a charity five-a-side football tournament on 5th September 2013, taking place in the shadow of Wembley Stadium. Gamewagon will be fielding a side and also sponsoring the Fair Play Award.
Gaming charity SpecialEffect has today announced their five-a-side football tournament to take place the 5th September 2013. The tournament will be a Champions League format, played within walking distance of Wembley Stadium at the Wembley Stadium Power League venue. As well as a trophy up for grabs, prizes will also be given to the winning team supplied by the Games Industry and players will get the chance to win signed football memorabilia in the event raffle.
Gamewagon has supported Special Effect since visiting the head quarters and seeing the magical moments they create in people lives. If you have not seen what they do take a look at their web page www.specialeffect.org.uk.
First Touch Games have kindly agreed to become match ball sponsors for the event with New Star Games sponsoring the Star Man player of the Tournament and Gamewagon sponsoring the fair play trophy. All three companies have also entered teams alongside the likes of Gamer Network, Codemasters Racing Studio, Konami, and Marmalade.
You can offer your support for the amazing work that special effect do at www.justgiving.com/SpecialEffectWembley. We will keep you posted on our progress and hopefully have some photos to display although I feel the trophy may be a step too far!!!
