This time prize money will be up for grabs, too. The competition’s sponsors Senate Bespoke Construction, whose founder Jason Woodford supports multiple club initiatives, will kindly be awarding £125 to the PS4 and Xbox One winners, as well as donating a hugely generous £1,000 to the NHS!

The deadline to enter has now passed.
What is the competition?
Players will compete from the comfort of their own homes in a straight knockout competition on FIFA 20. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One competitions will run simultaneously.
The tournaments will both begin at 7pm BST on Wednesday 5th August and will run for approximately one week, depending on demand. Both PS4 and Xbox One competitions will be contested in ‘Online Friendlies’ mode.
Online Friendlies mode means that players simply need to select a club or nation to play with. Players must use ‘online squads’ mode and will be able to select and change the club/nation they use on a game-by-game basis.
This will be the second #QPRfreeCup that QPR have organised this year, having hosted the first in April.
What is the prize money?
Senate Bespoke Construction have kindly provided a prize pot of £250 for this summer’s #QPRfreeCup.
This prize money will be split equally between the PS4 and Xbox One tournament winners, with each receiving £125.
As part of their sponsorship of the competition, Senate Bespoke Construction will also be making a fantastic £1,000 donation to the NHS. The club would like to extend its thanks to Senate Bespoke Construction and Jason Woodford for their incredible generosity.
When is the competition?
The first round will take place at 7pm (BST) on Wednesday 5th August, the second round at 7pm (BST) on Thursday 6th August and third round at 7pm (BST) on Friday 7th August.
