The game itself was a 0-0 affair, and with the stakes as high as they have ever been in playing FIFA 12, penalties loomed to decide who would take home the cash prize and event tickets. In the end, it was Ramos who kept his cool to bag the prizes, along with the title of 2012 FIFA Interactive World Cup Champion, presented by Kristian Karembeu and Luca Toni.
The two finalists came from a pool of 1.3m players via the Playstation network, and reaching the final entitled them to a three-day stay in the exclusive Jumeirah Resort, Dubai – the tournament was staged by FIFA and Presenting Partners EA SPORTS and Sony PlayStation.
Jon Rosenblatt, Senior Marketing Director, EA SPORTS, Europe and Asia, added, “Tonight’s incredibly skilled and thrilling finale provided a suitable end to this year’s competition and Alfonso Ramos is a worthy champion. The FIFA Interactive World Cup 2012 has seen the strongest field of competitors ever and to emerge as the Champion is testament to his skills on the virtual pitch – congratulations!”
