Top FIFA YouTubers To Face VR Challenge In Gadget Show Live 2016 Showdown

UK tech show contest to feature a virtual reality element.

The Gadget Show Live event, taking place at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, UK, will begin at the end of this month and the shows organisers have arranged a special showdown to take place. Gathering together top FIFA YouTube talent, these gamers will be taking part in challenges to garner the most points.

On the final day of the show, Sunday April 3rd, eight of the western world’s top FIFA players on YouTube, Oakelfish, Reev, Aj3 and JMX, will be squaring off against NepentheZ, Bateson87, TobiaasGaming and Fangs to see who’s the best.

These challenges will include a Mr & Mrs Q&A, with lie detector style punishments if they get an answer wrong, a Guinness World Record attempt, a race around the arena on the latest transport tech and gadgets from the show, and a 4 v 4 FIFA showdown using a virtual reality (VR) headset… turned the wrong way round.

“We represent some of the largest and most engaging YouTube talent of this generation,” said Chris Parnell, CEO & Co-Founder, Kairos Talent. “We’re proud to be able to bring you such an amazing line-up of personalities, and we’re really excited to see which team will come out on top.”

Sally Bent, Gadget Show Live event director added: “Gadget Show Live has supported YouTube gamers for years, shining a light on newbies and welcoming back famous faces time and again. Our visitors love meeting them and watching them play and we know they’ll go mad for this year’s totally unmissable Clash of the YouTubers, which is the finale to four days of wall-to-wall tech heaven for all the family.”

Tickets for The Gadget Show Live are still available, but Saturday has now sold out. VRFocus will continue its coverage of the event, reporting back any further VR related announcements.
