Based on the results of last night's group stage, the final tournament has been seeded and the first game will kick off at 3pm Central.
All games must be played consecutively, so you can not reschedule these matches for later in the afternoon. After you complete one game, you will immediately move to the next stage to await your opponent.
If you wish to play your first game early, you may do that.
Number 1 Rule: Talk to the Event Staff in the Chat!
Let us know you are there and playing in your match, and everything is ok. If a match goes for too long without communication, we may assume there was a forfeit or a no-show and report a loss. Communicate with your tournament staff to make sure we know you're active!
Good luck to all today!
Arkansas FIFA players,
Today at 6:30pm CDT the group stage for this qualifying stage of FIFA-FEST will begin. Players are playing for seeding in tomorrows tournament bracket. After tomorrow's tournament bracket ends, the top 2 players from PS4 and Xbox One will advance to represent Arkansas in the national tournament.
Teams may start to play their matches at 12pm if they'd like; although, the regulated start time for the first round is 6:30pm CDT. We allow players to start at noon to allow some flexibility in the competition scheduling for players.
If you join your match lobby at noon and your opponent is not present, we recommend sending them a friend request on your console and letting them know you're their first opponent. If you're not sure how to find your opponents gamertag.
1. Navigate to your match lobby
2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page
3. Your opponents gamertag should be visible underneath their GYO username. (picture below)
If you end up playing your match at noon, please take a screenshot or picture of the post match lobby via your phone and post it in your match lobby chat room, so we can see you played your match early.
Quick reminder, you can view the game rules here. I've included them below as well for convience.

Flex Scheduling Activated
We would like for every player to try to attend their scheduled game time, but understand some reschedules may need to occur. In order to reschedule, you MUST use the Reschedule tool to communicate with your opponent BEFORE your match. If you do not communicate prior to your match start and you do not show up for your scheduled time, you may be issued a forfeit.
Doing so requires you to contact your opponent, and our new "How to Reschedule" guide walks you through the process of finding your matches, finding your opponent, and contacting them.
"My Opponent Did Not Show Up"
Please use your Match Lobby to communicate with our support staff and let them know you have a potential no-show/forfeit. We will investigate and attempt to contact your opponent as well, and issue you a forfeit victory if they do not. Please allow at least an extra 10 minutes prior to claiming a forfeit, and attempt to contact them on Xbox or PS4 if they are not responsive in chat.
How Do I Report My Scores?
If you are looking at the Leaderboards and don't see your game recorded, you may not have updated your scores properly. Please review this guide: Playing Your Matches
