Ubaid seals Top 3 at the Mamelodi Sundowns Fifa 23 finals
The Mamelodi Sundowns Fifa 23 finals hosted by Mettlestate headlined Rage 2022 as the biggest Fifa tournament of the year. Eight participants from around the country battled it out for their share of a R200 000 prize pool. After fighting his way through a live qualifier, Bravado Gaming's Ubaid sealed his place at the Rage finals. In his first game, Ubaid showed character and a big match temperament as he closed out the series 2-1, sealing his place in the top 4. In his semi-final fixture, Ubaid went up against Kaylan Moodley. After a tough series that saw many close calls, Ubaid fell short as he went into the 3rd/4th place play-off. In the battle for 3rd place, Ubaid came flying out of the gates as he sealed the series and claimed a top 3 finish.
It was an honour to be part of the event this year and share the stage with so many amazing players. The atmosphere was electric and the crowd was engaging. Unfortunately I was hoping to bring home the cup, but the highlight was representing Bravado Gaming at another major event. This is just the start and in 2023, I'll be back with a bang - Ubaidullah Mahomed: Fifa player for Bravado Gaming.
Dax and Billy place top 3

After going through his initial competition, Dax found himself in the grand finals where faced off against Callym Beukes. After an end-to-end fight with small margins, Dax finished in 2nd place. Next up was Street Fighter Billy. Billy showed great decision making and was able to implement key combinations as he raced to the top 4. Small margins and close calls were the deciders as Billy finished in 3rd place.
Unfortunately we couldn't bring home first place. Nevertheless, the boys showed character and heart. Both managed to finish in the top 3 and I think this sort of momentum is important going into Redbull Hit The Streets - Tristan 'Zozu' Rens: General manager for Bravado Gaming
