The Gfinity FIFA 18 Spring Cup Live esports Finals, a major competitive video game tournament, will take place at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort, May 12-13, 2018, marking the first time Disney will host an esports event at the sports complex.
The tournament will showcase the top 16 video game players from the United States, Canada and Mexico competing on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One formats. The eight players on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One who have earned the most G points (earned by playing and winning matches) will be invited to Disney for the finals and the chance to advance to the official FIFA eWorld Cup in August.
The Gfinity FIFA 2018 Spring Cup Live esports Finals will take place for the first time in the United States and represents Disney’s entry into the competitive esports industry.
