2nd Annual Midnight Riders FIFA Tournament

FIFA: Where video game and soccer nerds unite.

You’re ready. Your thumbs are strong enough to mold steel. You can operate that controller with lightning-fast accuracy. You haven’t thrown a controller across the room in frustration in at least 72 hours. You’re at peak performance and ready to vault yourself into legend. It’s time to take your expert skills to the big show and square off against the best of the best at the annual Midnight Riders FIFA Tournament.

The Midnight Riders are proud to partner with ThinkTaylor, Taylor Twellman’s charity for education, support and fundraising to promote positive outcomes from sports-related brain concussion, for this awesome event. We’ll be setting registered players up into brackets, we’re taking over the Greatest Bar in downtown Boston and will face off in FIFA 13 matches in single-elimination until a champion is crowned (jubilant carrying through the streets of Boston optional). Register today as either a Player or a Spectator to reserve your spot (it’s cheaper to register in advance, plus you’ll be certain you have a spot) and make sure to pick up an event t-shirt. We’ll have prizes for the winners, a raffle for more awesome stuff, and all the proceeds will go to benefit ThinkTaylor. Sign up today!
