August 14, 2022. 162 hopefuls entered into the tournament, a collaboration between WYLDE, Digicel, Sportsmax, Loop, DrBirdz and the Jamaican Esports Initiative. Out of all of the entries, only 32 were invited to compete for their place at the top and be crowned Jamaica’s best!
With each player geared up and ready to show what they could do on the pitch, it was time for them to put their skills to the test and hopefully make it to the top 8, where they would compete live, on stage at Digicel’s Jamaica HQ and after 2 days on intense competition, we had our 8 finalists who would make the journey in an effort to prove themself and take home the title of Jamaica’s best! The competition was tough, but at the end of it all, there could only be 2 in the grand finals, and what a final it would end up being!
Both players, Bignoseballa and LS_21don, deserving silverware, both with the belief that they were the best, and the skills to match but there was only one person who could walk away with the title of Jamaica’s best and after a dominant 4 – 1 in regular time, it was ls_21don who would emerge victorious and claim his place at the top of his nation’s FIFA scene!
⚡️⚡️We have CHAMPION ⚡️⚡️
Confident, cool and focussed, Tahjay Solomon (@Incontrol_Tahj) takes the CROWN as the best FIFA player in Jamaica 🇯🇲.
Huge respect to all 8 amazing finalists and massive credit to @digiceljamaica and its partners for hosting this landmark event! pic.twitter.com/diTiojwLTL
