FIFA Interactive World Cup officially the largest gaming tournament in the world

With more than 775,000 competitors taking part in the 2010 edition of the FIFA Interactive World Cup, the Guinness Book of Records officially announced the competition as the largest gaming tournament in the world.

To celebrate the announcement, the winner of the tournament, Nenad Stojkovic, was invited to meet Joseph S. Blatter, the current FIFA President at the Home of FIFA.

Chief editor of Guinness World Records Gaz Deaves spoke highly of the FIFA video game franchise saying, “The strength of the FIFA Interactive World Cup is a hugely impressive achievement and its 775,000 participants are a testament not only to the popularity of sports video games but also to the incredible effort it takes to organize the biggest gaming tournament in the world. We are pleased to award this record to FIFA and look forward to seeing it broken in 2011.”

EA Sports is already looking to break the record that was recently put in place. You can find out more about the 2011 FIFA Interactive World Cup by clicking here.
