Guinness World Records reveals FIFA-related records





Guinness World Records is celebrating the release of FIFA 16 by revealing some of the records that FIFA players have under their belts.

With FIFA 16 out now, Guinness World Records took the opportunity to highlight some of the current FIFA world records.

One of the most impressive on the list is the “Longest Marathon for a Sports Videogame (FIFA 15)”. Chris Cook from Birmingham played FIFA 15 for an incredible 48 hours, 49 minutes, and 41 seconds. And he managed to keep the commentary on at all times. His marathon was in aid of gamer’s charity Special Effect.




Meanwhile, competitive players might be intrigued by the record held by Ivan 'BorasLegend' Lapanje of Sweden. He is the Highest Earning FIFA videogame player after having earned $145,378.56. He really has the skills to pay the bills.

Other records include the Highest Score on FIFA Street in which Andrew Mee managed 222,774 points, while Shawn Alvarez has recorded the Most Consecutive Cross Bar Hits in one minute in FIFA 14, scoring 4 times.

These, and many other records, are listed in the Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition. The 2016 version of Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition is now available.
