(MENAFN-mslgroup) To celebrate the highly anticipated football season, Samsung will host its first-ever Roblox Space Cup tournament in the MENA region in December. Samsung released Space Tycoon earlier this year, a virtual playground built within the global metaverse platform Roblox, aimed primarily at Gen Z customers to create games, play games, and share experiences with Samsung Electronics devices.
The exclusive Open Door Space Cup tournament will be hosted by eight regional gaming influencers from different countries in the MENA region. As captains of their teams, they each form a team of three from players who had registered to take part in the tournament. The eight teams will compete against each other during the two-day Roblox tournament to win the coveted trophy.
Mohammed Al Azzawe, Head of Brand Marketing and Digital – MENA Regional HQ at Samsung Electronics, said: “The spirit of football continues to enjoy great popularity in the MENA region. As Samsung continually strives to combine innovation with exciting experiences, our newly launched Space Cup tournament in the Metaverse will allow Gen Z gamers to experience Samsung products and their favorite sport, soccer. Our goal is to provide meaningful and fun experiences that allow our Gen Z audience to compete and engage with the regional gaming community. We are excited to deliver unique and personalized experiences that cater to audiences’ interests, hobbies and trends.”
In order to register and participate in the tournament, players must download Roblox and create an avatar. They must then search for “Samsung Space Tycoon” and join the game, locate the Space Cup in the main lobby, take a selfie screenshot with it, and share the resulting image with the captain of their choice, representing the country of their choice on social media .
