The competition winner will manage the Norwich City Legends team who will be taking on an Inter Forever side, as well as a receive a £25,000 cash prize.

The pre-selected 64 competitors will compete in the tournament at Insomnia62, the UK's largest gaming festival, on April 1 at the NEC in Birmingham.

The winner is then able to manage the game between the Norwich City Legends and Inter Forever on Sunday May 20. The match coincides with the 25 year anniversary of the Norwich team of 1993 that went on a European cup run, only to be beaten by Inter Milan.

The Norwich team will contain legends like Chris Sutton, Darren Huckerby and Grant Holt, against an Inter Milan with former stalwarts Marco Materazzi, Javier Zanetti and Francesco Toldo.

Applicants can apply for the competition with a short 60 second video and explanation on the Football Manager World eSports Championship site here:
