Keep your ears peeled for the ref’s whistle because the special in-game event Tank Football 2016 will be taking to the field from June 10. In this event, which will be on for nearly a month, 3-vs-3 teams compete to score the most goals in a seven minute match. With no feet, players must use their tank’s gun to blast the ball around the pitch and into the opponent’s net. During Tank Football 2016, all players will be credited the unique T-62a Sport (T-62a S) with a free Garage slot. To join the event, all you have to do is select your T-62a S and click the Battle! button.

Tank Football 2016 puts its own twist on the beautiful game. During matches, your tank will be incapable of damaging or destroying another vehicle. However, you can shoot the tracks of your opponent’s tank and ram their vehicle to immobilize them. With the enemy out of action, this is the perfect time to break out your tekkers with a special football consumable—Turbocharger—temporarily speeding up your vehicle to reach that final third.

There are three stadiums available to play in: Himmelsdorf Arena, Stade Eiffel, and Old Tankford. Tank Football 2016 will also let you tackle new battle missions; go it alone or platoon with up to three teammates. You can even deck your tank out with a range of customization emblems and flags of the countries taking part in this summer’s major European football event.

Additionally, there will also be a tank football tournament held. The registration period for it starts June 1 and will last until June 15. All you have to do is build a team of 3 players then prove your tank football skills. The four best teams get one year of Premium Account time and a Type 59 tank for each member. They will also have the chance to compete against the 4 best CIS teams for a chunk of a $5,000 prize pool.

At the end of the event, the T-62a S, Garage slot and flags of the countries taking part in Euro 2016 will be removed from players. However, any medals and emblems earned will remain with you as a memento of the event.
