The FPF eSports Douro Cup by André Gomes starts this Saturday with the group stage of the event. In this initial stage there will be 32 players competing for the 16 places for the finals, which will be played on Sunday.
The groups are already defined and the start of the competition can be followed live this Saturday from 16:00, on the Twitch of RTP Arena. Comments will be made by Archarom, Bombnuker, JOLiveira10 and Moreira.
The Douro Cup is a prestigious youth soccer competition and an experience for all those who love sport and have a pillar of education, citizenship, friendship, respect and social integration. The virtual football version aims to fill the lack of physical event in this year’s edition, motivated by the Covid-19 outbreak, in order to provide a different digital experience to all those who had the agenda to visit the Douro region for the 2020 event.
During the competition there will be three solidarity initiatives: a direct donation to help the project “Resistentes“, an auction of André Gomes boots customized by the artist Mr.Dheo, and a game between JOliveira10 and André Gomes – Resistentes Challenge – where each goal it is converted into solidary money for the “Resistant” cause.
Regarding the tournament prizes, the first place winner guarantees a National Team jersey signed by André Gomes, an experience with the Portuguese player (travel + stay + watching a André Gomes game in 2020/21 and Meet & Greet *) and an Alpha chair Gamer Special Edition FPF.
The runner-up receives an FPF Legends jersey and an Alpha Gamer Special Edition FPF chair. The third and fourth classified will be entitled to an FPF Legends jersey.
