Ooredoo — Qatar’s leading ICT provider and a regional pioneer in eSports — has declared its recent EA Sports FIFA22 Champions Cup a resounding success. Winners were presented with their prizes by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulla Al Thani, Chief Executive Officer of Ooredoo Qatar.

The event, organised by Ooredoo’s own eSports brand, Ooredoo Nation – Gamers’ Land, was held 24, 25 and 28 May 2022, in collaboration with Dell Technologies and powered by Quest LLC.

The tournament featured some of the world’s top gamers and offered a US$50,000 prize pool. Sixteen globally ranked players from South Africa, southeast Asia and the MENA region competed in elimination rounds until just two remained to challenge each other in the finals.

Among the players was Ms Dossary, considered one of the best players in the world today, as well as Qatar’s very own Ahmad Mghessib, who is an official athlete in Ooredoo’s eSports professional team.

Ms Dossary secured top spot and walked off with a prize of US$25,000, while Kaylan Moodley received US$15,000 in second place. Third and fourth place, both winning US$5,000, went to Ahmed Al Meghessib and Haroun Yassin respectively. 

In a move that cements Ooredoo’s position as a pioneer in eSports and Web 3.0 space, the entire event was broadcast in the metaverse. A second major innovation was Ooredoo Nation – Gamers’ Land offering exclusive digital artworks (NFTs) to all event-goers, establishing Ooredoo as first telecom operator in the region to do so.

Fans enjoyed QR100,000 worth of giveaways, including smartphones, gaming consoles, VR headsets and more.

The EA Sports FIFA22 Champions Cup was also broadcast on Ooredoo TV channel 0 and streamed live on YouTube with top-tier commentating in both Arabic and English. It gathered thousands of views on the livestream.

Oscar Javier Vilda Rubio, Executive Director Consumer at Ooredoo said: “We were delighted to see such an enthusiastic response to this groundbreaking event, both from international gamers and the many fans who enjoyed the tournament in person and online. eSports represents an exciting new avenue for Ooredoo, with phenomenal potential, and the dawn of the metaverse only expands this potential. We offer our congratulations to Ms Dossary and our thanks to everyone who took part in the tournament and joined the experience with us."

Qatar Living was proud to be the official media partner of this grand eSports event.
