Empire Arcadia CEO Issiah ‘Triforce’ Johnson spoke about the FIFA Interactive World Cup and his ambitions to bring the game to Jamaica.
“We’ve been following the FIWC since 2014 and we’re looking to ensure that Jamaica gets a chance to be represented next year” Johnson said. “As such we focused hugely on competitions in the country in 2015 and out of eight competitions, Empire Arcadia’s FIFA division Silverbirds, won seven of them.”
Aside from the team’s own accomplishments, Empire Arcadia is looking to get the involvement of Jamaican company Digicel in sponsoring a FIFA Interactive World Cup event in the island nation.
“We’re hoping to set something up later in the year in Jamaica that can coordinate with the FIFA Interactive World Cup,” he said. “The key is to get Digicel involved who has been the first titan corporation in Jamaica to really support esports. The fans and players are there and Jamaica has opportunities; sponsors there have proven they’re keen to get involved in this space and we’re at the forefront looking to move it further along.”
Johnson went on to list no fewer than five organizers in Jamaica. In his view, the ground level support is there for FIFA to come in and host an event there.
