Andries Smit wins FIFA Interactive World Cup 2006 Grand Final

It was a worldwide XBL tourneyYou guys are probably too busy playing multiplayer on Gears, but just in case you care, here’s the news: Andries Smit from the Netherlands emerged victorious from the FIFA Interactive World Cup 2006, after beating Austrian Wolfgang Meier in a grueling Grand Final that had its final score pegged at 6:4.

Here’s what Smit had to say after receiving the prize money of $20,000:

IÂ’m absolutely amazed, stunned and delighted! I thought that it was just great to be in the Grand Final, but here I am leaving with the title and a trip to Zurich to the FIFA World Player Gala! I canÂ’t believe it! The whole tournament was just brilliant

Even though the football was all virtual (they were playing FIFA 07), Amsterdam‘s Westergasfabriek was tightly packed with 1,500 spectators. What’s nice about this year is that this years’ Cup can truly be called a global event. In addition to the qualifying events that took place around the world, players from 25 countries competed on Xbox Live for their place in the Grand Final. This yearÂ’s finalists also met the 16 final contestants from the two previous FIWC tournaments.

Too bad last year’s winner didn’t get as much as this year’s did.
