Season 2: The numbers
Over 2 million online matches were played in Season 2 and over 7.9 million goals were scored as players battled it out for one of the three available tickets to the Grand Final. With three confirmed Grand Finalists, and a place reserved for Les Bleus at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, France is enjoying a rich vein of form both on the virtual and real football pitch as we build to the FIWC 2014 Grand Final and the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. France also currently enjoys the highest number of registered FIWC gamers, followed by Germany and reigning FIFA World Cup champions Spain.

Community qualifier
Scoring a perfect 3.0 ratio is an incredible achievement. Congratulations to the three gamers that managed to accomplish this in Online Season 2.

WagWanSan’s incredible goal difference (310) ensured that he won the tiebreaker convincingly, with runners-up urugnomas and xM-i_l-e-n-i-Ox recording goal differences of 159 and 124 respectively.
