Microsoft is sponsoring an esports competition with prizes totaling $10,000. The game? Well, it’s not exactly a game — it’s Microsoft Excel.
Every year, the top Microsoft Excel users (players?) from around the world face off in the Financial Modeling World Cup (FMWC) (via PCWorld). The qualifying rounds already took place, leaving just eight Excel masters to compete for the FMWC crown. The quarter-finals, semifinals, and final round all take place today at 12PM ET via a YouTube livestream and the ESPN app.
Tomorrow, December 11, is the day for the FMWC Open finals!
8 quarter-finalists will showcase their Excel wizardry to earn the Excel master title and a share of the $10,000 prize fund.
We go live at 5:00 PM UTC+0 on our Youtube…
