UGL’s inaugural event, The Halftime Football Challenge will pit the best Madden NFL 17 players in Northern California against each other in a battle of wits, football knowledge and skill.  The tournament will take place at Oakland’s Halftime Sports bar on Saturday, October 15, 2016.

Throughout the centuries there have been some epic battles where mere mortals tested their strength, their cunning and their wit to noteworthy adversaries.  These battles played out everywhere from the blacktop to the hardwood, from Rome’s ancient Colosseum to the Oakland Coliseum.

Epic competitions like the Thriller in Manila to Lakers vs. Celtics in the 1980’s and Brady vs. Manning will forever be ingrained in the public’s consciousness.  Those battles have earned their spots in history already.  Video games give the average Joe the opportunity to step into the shoes of legends and become legends themselves.

Now folks who think they have skills and understand that life is not complete unless you compete will have a chance to test their mettle here in Oakland in the ultimate Madden Tournament.  We are looking for 64 strong men and women who are not afraid to go head to head to represent the best of the Bay Area.  Whether you root for the 49ers, the Raiders or an out of town team, it doesn't matter.  Can you throw down and truly rep on the Sticks?

This tournament is not for faint of heart. It’s not for sucka ducks.  We are looking for folks who are dedicated to dominating their opponent.  Is that you?  Are you willing to step up?  Are you destined to be immortal?  Then the Halftime Football Challenge awaits you!!!
