Extratime.ie esports Cup -- Match Day 2by Gareth Penrose
Day 2 of the Extratime.ie esports Cup
After the opening day’s action saw Cork City and Dundalk draw 1-1 while Waterford grabed a dramatic late winner in a 2-1 victory over UCD/Shelbourne, the action continued in Group 1.
The first game of Match Day 2 saw Cameron Saul make his debut as Finn Harps took on Jaze Kabia of Shelbourne (but playing as UCD). Kabia was in need of a win after losing his first game while Saul was hoping to get off to a winning start. You can watch Game 3 of the Extratime.ie esports Cup below:
The second game of the day pitted Dundalk’s Dan Kelly against Waterford’s Tyreke Wilson. Both players came into the game unbeaten but would that status end for one of these player? The action can be viewed below:
For all the games, we will have a commentary team of sports broadcaster Oisin Langan and pro FIFA player Eric Finn.

With sporting events around the country called off due to the extremely challenging circumstances facing the country due to coronavirus/COVID-19, some of Ireland’s leading League of Ireland stars are taking their football skills online to help raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Ireland’s 65 Roses Day.
The extratime.ie esports Cup will see ten players from Ireland’s Premier Division take up their Play Station 4 (PS4) consoles and tackle each other from the comfort of their own homes in the FIFA20 video game.
Funds raised on 65 Roses Day go towards supporting people with cystic fibrosis and providing them with a better quality of life through funding of grants for exercise, transplant support, fertility treatment and counselling; support for research and advocacy work to help improve CF services in Ireland; and direct funding of CF units and CF specialist staff in hospitals across Ireland.
