On 21st December 2002 the first round of the Intel Masters Gaming Championships will take place at the Science Museum in London.
This will be the biggest pro-gaming even of its kind ever in the UK. That's right: pro-gaming. This is about winning money by playing videogames, and there's a massive Â£25,000 up for grabs.
The first round is going to be played out by the country's top teams who have been invited by Intel to join in the fun. The experience won't be exclusive to the gaming elite as visitors to the Science Museum will be invited to come and check out the action, play some FIFA 2003 and rub shoulder with the PC Gamer and PC Format teams, as well as the players.
Admission is free, but there will be a limited number of tickets available for the day's events at the Intel Masters which will kick off at 11am
Games on the IMAX® screen
All this will be hosted in the splendour of the Science Museum's super-high-tech installation, the Wellcome Wing, home to the computing exhibition, Digitopolis. This is the part of the Science Museum that boasts the astounding IMAX® cinema and all the excitement of the big games will be projected on the massive main screen. The action will be dissected by our experts and presented by Chris Barrie.
