Snap Soccer eGaming – Player of the Month in April
The Snap Soccer eGaming team would like to congratulate Clayton Nolen for achieving Player of the Month in April. Clayton won three out of four tournaments and went unbeaten twice. In his three title campaigns, Clayton scored 103 goals while allowing 49 goals.
Clayton, who plays club soccer for Perdido Bay FC, was one of the first participants to join Snap Soccer eGaming upon its creation in March of 2020.
“It is impressive to see Clayton grow in skill,” said Parker McIntosh, an employee of Snap Soccer who manages the weekly tournaments. “Watching him come so close last month to now winning three straight tournaments is pretty awesome to witness.”
Snap Soccer eGaming began on Facebook as a community of youth soccer players committed to playing FIFA 20 on Xbox One competitively. The community has since migrated to Learn.SnapSoccer.com and requires a $20 annual subscription.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic that forced all sports to cease playing in person, the online community has been something for the kids to look forward to while still being involved in the game of soccer.
“Snap Soccer’s FIFA tournaments have provided a great outlet for competition while the quarantine keeps the boys away from their usual events,” said Carla Nolen, Clayton’s mother. “Parker’s communication has made it very low-stress as a parent, and I know the boys look forward to it every week.”
While Clayton’s first tournament title didn’t occur until April, he did make the championship game twice in March.
“He has been practicing,” said Carla following her son’s first tournament title. “Maybe too much.”
Clayton’s success comes at a perfect time. The Couch Cup, Snap Soccer eGaming’s first premium tournament, is May 7th – 9th. Snap Soccer is donating a portion of the proceeds to the American Red Cross to help with the COVID-19 relief effort, giving a greater meaning to playing a video game tournament.
“It’s nice to know my participation in this event is going towards an important cause,” said Clayton. “It means a lot to me that events like this can allow people like me and the other competitors to help in times like this.”
