Note New Dates: The 2023 edition of the IBEW 213 Cyber Games!
We are excited to announce that our goal of hosting the first-ever North America-wide IBEW 213 Cyber Games videogame tournament will become a reality in April 2023! Video games allow us to do what we love from the comfort of our own living room couches while still being engaged with our union!
The IBEW 213 Cyber Games was born in March of 2020, right as COVID-19 took over the world and was a way to still have an event while everyone was locked at home. On June 20, 2020 District 1 (Canada) had the first IBEW 213 Cyber Games, which was a smashing success! We’re now expanding the IBEW 213 Cyber Games to all IBEW Local Unions in the United States and Canada.
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 4/5, or Xbox One/Series X. Don’t have a copy of Rocket League? Don’t worry; it’s now a free-to-play game!

How Many People Per Team?
Teams will play with three (3) players but can have up to five (5) on the roster. 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 other solo sisters or brothers.
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:
Ready Player One? REGISTER HERE
Registration is open now! Don’t wait until the last minute; it’s first come, first serve, and we’ll be capping it at 32 teams. Our first year filled up early, so don’t wait!
When is the Tournament?
The tournament is scheduled for Saturday & Sunday, April 29 & 30, 2023. Saturday, April 29 will be the round-robin qualifiers, and Sunday, April 30 will be the elimination bracket.
What players need to know:
For all teams that register, there will be a player meeting held the week before the tournament so we can all see the faces behind the screen. The tournament schedule will be posted once registration closes.
What are this year’s prizes?
Stay tuned! We haven’t finalized that yet, but if you scroll down you can get an idea of what they could be from last seasons prizes
What are the Rules?
Review and familiarize yourself with the rules and regulations for this event, including a code of conduct that will be enforced throughout the tournament. Claiming ignorance of the rules and code is not a viable defense.
