The one-day e-sports tournament replicates the format of the real Emirates FA Cup, with one player selected at random to represent each club from this year’s Third Round onwards.

Early rounds will take place in iconic locations in the stadium such as the player’s tunnel and the changing rooms, in a gaming event unlike any other.

The winner will climb the famous 107 steps from the pitch up to the Royal Box where they will lift The Emirates FA Cup.


Lucy Roberts-Hartley, The Emirates FA Cup Senior Brand Manager said: “We want to invite gamers from across the world to register for a chance to take part and descend on the home of football, raising the stakes even higher in 2017 to see if anyone else can cause an almighty Emirates FA Cup upset.”

Players can enter via www.EveryGamersAdventure.com from today, where they will be entered into a ballot and subsequently selected at random to be one of the 64 names in the Third Round draw.

Applications are now open and will close on Friday 10 March 2017 with those selected in the ballot notified by Friday 24 March 2017.
