FIFA SOCCER 11 Launch NYC w/ Red Bulls
FIFA 11's launch event was a huge success with 12 New York Red Bulls players in attendance for the 1st FIFA 11 Tournament ever at Red Bull Space in SoHo. Those players who attended were Tony Tchani, Jeremy Hall, Mehdi Ballouchy, Juan Agudelo, Austin da Luz, Brian Nielsen, Siniša Ubiparipović, Conor Chinn, Irving Garcia, Dane Richards, Danleigh Borman, and Luke Sassano. Sinisa Ubiparipovic won the tournament when he bested Conor Chinn in the Championship Match. After the tournament, the players mingled with their fans and other guests. Some players even played with fans. I had the opportunity to put a beating on super winger Dane Richards and got cheated by Danleigh Borman in a lost on penalty kicks.
Before the end of the night a raffle was held for copies of the game and even an xbox elite. Me being a person who has never won anything in 30 years paid little attention to the raffle as it was going on only to my surprise I won a Fifa 11 game for XBOX.
Being a release party there were complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres served throughout the night for all to enjoy. Go out and pick yourself up a FIFA 11 as the game is official Futbolr status
