The first season of the FIFA Interactive World Cup 2011 (FIWC11) is over and two of the coveted places at this year's Grand Final have been reserved. Check back soon for the final Season 1 winners' announcement!

We saw some spectacular matches and tense battles for the top berths in Season 1 of FIWC11. Season 2 began on 1 January 2011 and runs through to 25 January, with two more places at the FIWC11 Grand Final of up for grabs.

Our FIWC11 Live Events also kick off this year. Check our recently updated Events section for information on pre-qualifiers and final live events.

Those who do make it to the world's largest virtual football tournament will be in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes. Along with a cash prize of USD 20,000, the FIWC11 champion will also receive a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the FIFA Ballon d'Or Gala 2011, so turn on your PlayStation and get involved!

Equal opportunities
Missed out on a top two finish in Season 1? Not to worry! Give it your all in Season 2. This year's qualifying format is far more flexible and points from the previous season do not count. All players start from scratch at the beginning of every online season (there are six online seasons in total), giving everyone a number of chances to clinch a Grand Final ticket.

Even if you are yet to register, you stand just as much of a chance of reaching the Grand Final of the FIFA Interactive World Cup 2011 as anyone else. We hope Season 2 is just as exciting and eventful as the first and wish all participants the best of luck in the FIFA Interactive World Cup 2011!
