Sony and EA have kicked off the FIFA Interactive World Cup 2012 on PS3.
Six online seasons will be running between now and the end of May, with the top two players from each of them qualifying for the grand final. 11 live qualifier events will also take place globally.
The lucky gamer crowned world champion will walk away with $20,000 in prize money, the FIFA Interactive World Player award and a VIP trip to the FIFA Ballon d'Or Gala. Last year's winner was a 16 year old Portuguese lad called Francesco Cruz.
You can register to take part now on PS3 with your copy of FIFA 12, and you can find out more about the competition here.
