£29k total announcement featuring three footballers

After last year’s expansion to a second tournament in Liverpool, we decided to go even bigger this year by adding a third regional tournament in Birmingham. We would like to thank our incredible headline sponsors First Touch Games and all of our fantastic regional sponsors – Red Kite Games and Ripstone (Liverpool), Xbox and Once Upon a Time (London), and Kwalee and Genba (Birmingham) – for making this the best football fives series yet! The series raised a simply incredible £29,000 for our work and we are so very grateful.

Congratulation also to all of our tournament winners. Our three amazing trophy winners were Sony Xdev (Liverpool), Sports Interactive (London) and Rare Ltd (Birmingham) and our fantastic plate winners were 10:10 Games, Climax Games and First Touch Games!

Next year will be the tenth edition of the SpecialEffect Games Industry football Fives, do watch this space for news of what we have planned for 2024!
