Stephen Coorey, known in online FIFA circles as Scoorey, had a successful weekend in Auckland trying to qualify for the final of the FIFA Interactive World Cup. Played in front of a large crowd at Auckland’s Aotea Centre during the Armageddon Expo, Coorey came away the victor beating out 15 year old New Zealander Alistair Wallace 4-3. In a repeat of last years competition, Coorey flew from Australia to contest the event and made the finals relatively unchallenged. This year however, he managed to secure the win, making the trip from Australia a little sweeter than last time.
Coorey will travel to Berlin early next year to compete in the Grand Final for the title of FIFA Interactive World Cup Champion. As well as the title, the Grand Final winner will also receive US $20000, a brand new KIA ‘Soul’ car and a trip for two to the FIFA World Player Gala to receive their trophy. More details at FIFA.com
