It’s back and we’re ready for round 2 of the 2014/15 season!
Lets set the scene, 50+ of the UK’s top media surrounded by Fifa 15, top quality consumer products and apps, as well as the key ingredient, a s**t load of food and booze.
Entering what was our sixth tournament and with the attendee numbers ever growing, we felt it was time for a change and moved venue to the bigger plush Sports Bar & Grill, Piccadilly. We also thought the event deserved to be shared on a wider spectrum, so with the help of the guys at Twitch we streamed the skills on show to a worldwide audience – as if there wasn’t enough pressure.
Again breaking our own records, MUSTARD PR with a huge help of our sponsors – Devialet, Drift, Daymen and Mr Vine – pulled together our biggest prize bundle ever for the lucky winner. The pot included a Phantom Silver speaker, Drift Action Cameras, Joby GorillaPod & GripTight and a bottle of Champagne.
The build up was intensifying, so much so that even the big guns Martin Tyler and Alan Smith we’re talking about the tournament prospects….
With all that set MUSTARDPRFIFA15 was ready for kick-off. After grabbing a few beers from the bar, the like of BBC, The Sun, The Guardian, Engadget and GQ just to name a few, were ready to battle it out. The first round saw some big pre-tournament contenders fall short of the mark with previous winners Lee Stobbs, GQ and Andy Hall, The Sun both bowing out. The official statistics clearly show there was a theme which followed all those that were unfortunate not to progress.
Fast forward to the final and we saw Attention Seekers TV’s very own Matt Newstead face up against Neil X from Offside Rule for the grand prize. After an extremely well fought out battle Matt went onto win and become our latest champ and hold the bragging rights!
As always we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who attended and also another huge thank you to our sponsors who made the night possible.
