Third time lucky for August Rosenmeler of Denmark, as he took home the top prize at the FIFA Interactive World Cup Grand Final held last weekend in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The 18 year-old, who made his third consecutive appearance at the Grand Final, defeated David Bytheway of England 3-1 in the final match to take home the crown.
In addition to the grand prize of $20,000 USD, Rosenmeler will attend the Ballon d’Or award ceremonies early next year in Switzerland.
Two million players from around the world took part in this year’s FIWC, with the finalists from around the globe travelling to Brazil to take part in the Grand Final.
