We're offering 10,000 guaranteed spots on the beta test for the football MMO, Football Superstars, via entry in the exclusive Eurogamer Cup, a knockout competition with a GBP 3000 prize. You can read more about how to get on the beta here. Meanwhile, read on for our own hands-on impressions of the game.
There ain't no party like a beta test party 'cause a beta test party don't stop (until it does, obviously). That's how we rock the mic here at Eurogamer - and we bring you the goods to prove it.
Eurogamer and CyberSports have joined forces to offer Eurogamer readers 10,000 places on the beta for football MMO Football Superstars. But this is no ordinary beta key giveaway - you can win cash as well as access.
We're guaranteeing the first 10,000 people to enter the Football Superstars Eurogamer Cup before Friday access to the beta, so they can brush up on their skills before the game goes live and the tournament begins in earnest. (If you've already registered for the competition, don't worry, you already qualify.)

Now, we're playing football.
CyberSports is after its first batch of testers for massively multiplayer online game Football Superstars.
MMOG of the beautiful game.
Like all beautiful things (Sheryl Cole, anyone?) Football Superstars is dead simple. Everyone loves football, right?

So why not combine the two?
