Announcing the IBEW 213 Cyber Games!
“Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.” There’s no doubt that COVID-19 has led us down a difficult road but did we ever find a gem on the side of this path! In the times of social distancing and staying locked in the confines of our homes some of our members came up with the idea of hosting a online, multiplayer charity video game tournament for our IBEW Sisters & Brothers. Yes, that means everyone from Tofino to Newfoundland and everywhere in between. Does your local have what it takes to be the Cyber Games Season 1 champions?

What Game are We Playing?
Rocket League! We chose this because it is cross-platform, meaning you can play on, with and against anyone on Nintendo, PC, PlayStation or Xbox, and it’s accessible to everyone. Don’t have the tools for the job? Just like on site, you need to bring the tools that are required in order to participate.
How Many People Per Team?
Teams will be up to three (3) players. Don’t have three? Teams of two will do! Like to fly solo? That’s cool too! Register on your own and we’ll match you up with another solo sister or brother.
How Do I Sign Up?
First figure out if you’re flying solo or coming in with a team. Either way, you’ll need a Team Name and a Team Captain. If you’re solo, the Captain part is easy. If you’re a duo or trio you’ll need to choose your Captain, because they’ll be the one registering your team.
Captains, BEFORE YOU REGISTER gather up for EACH PERSON on your team:
- Full Name
- Phone Number
- Gaming Platform
- IBEW Local
Ready Player One? REGISTER HERE
Registration closes at midnight June 12.
When is the Tournament?
The tournament is scheduled for Saturday, June 20, 2020 between approx. 3 p.m. & 6 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.
What are the Rules?
Review and familiarize yourself with the Rules & Regulations for this event, including a Code of Conduct that will be enforced throughout the tournament. Claiming ignorance of the Rules & Regulations is not a viable defense.
