Tricked FIFA won its first World Championship in 2014 when August “Agge” Rosenmeier went all the way and won an intense final 2-1 against Dave Bytheway in Rio de Janeiro. We almost felt the intense samba rythms all the way to Denmark in the North when August lifted his trophy. The champion was accompanied by his then-teammate Anders “MrSuit” Bollerup, who sadly had to see himself defeated in the group stages. Nevertheless, it was a grand accomplishment for us to feature not one, but two players at the World's most prestigious FIFA tournament.
Besides taking home the title as world champion, August could also take home a check of 20.000 dollars and a trophy handed over by the legendary Brazilian striker Ronaldo - Yes, that Ronaldo!
The accomplishment was replicated by Tricked player Mohamad Al-Bacha a couple of years later. He brought one of the most intense finals ever seen in the history of the FIFA World Championships. The final was split over two matches which were decided by the 'Away Goals'-rule. After two overtime goals in the 2nd match, Mohamad could call himself the World Champion. The trophy handed over by David Villa in the stunning and storied Apollo Theater in New York.
