Your weekend was probably not as cool as that of the six guys in the above picture.
That is because those lucky lads spent Sunday evening at Royston Drenthe’s house taking part in a surprise FIFA 14 tournament!
One day earlier, the Dutch midfielder posted the following message to his Instagram:
"Anyone who thinks they are good at FIFA14 & is a Reading fan living in reading like this pic & tomorrow I will choose 4 people to come to mine to play a FIFA14 tournament winner gets a nice prize which will be revealed tomorrow, drop your number on here & hope for a call."
Anyone who thinks they are good at FIFA, huh?
After probably receiving the phone numbers of every single Reading citizen that owns the video game, Drenthe ended up picking six winners (instead of four) to come by his house the next day to see who would take home the “nice prize.”
Of course, Drenthe documented the entire tournament on Instagram, even providing live commentary that would make Clive Tyldesley and Andy Gray proud:
After a few hours, the winner was crowned and Drenthe handed out the mystery prize - an authentic Drenthe Reading jersey (shocker!).
Apparently, Drenthe had so much fun hosting that he is set to do it again. He captioned this last Instagram picture with a promise to hold another tournament next month, albeit in his native Holland.
