What if we told you that you could virtually participate in your own soccer game? And what if we told you that this could be your chance to use your coding skills and win the BYJU’S Coding Cup? Continue reading to find out more.

You may be aware that BYJU’S, the world’s largest educational company, is a FIFA World Cup 2022TM official sponsor. To make it more interesting and to ensure that you get to showcase your coding skills and experience the thrill of being a part of the event, we have launched the BYJU’S Coding Cup. 

What is BYJU’S Coding Cup?

A global coding competition created by Tynker, a BYJU’S company and a leading K-12 creative coding platform, the BYJU’s Coding Cup allows you to customize and program the moves of soccer players on a virtual “mini-team” and compete against other players from around the world. It is open to children aged 7–18, who have permission and clearance from their parent or legal guardian, if under the age of majority. With the BYJU’S Coding Cup, you can participate in simple block-based coding challenges with rich visuals. 

This is how it works: Using code, you will work to design and train a mini-team of three players, including a goalkeeper, defender, and striker. Furthermore, you can choose from a wide range of characteristics to customize your players’ appearance, ranging from hair color to eye color to skin tone and gender. Following the formation and training of the team, you can play some practice matches against yourself and then compete with other teams worldwide. The global leaderboard will reflect real-time rankings of matches.

What Makes BYJU’S Coding Cup So Special?

The first of its kind for children, the BYJU’S Coding Cup taps into the global passion for soccer (also known as football) with over five billion people predicted to tune into the FIFA World Cup 2022TM
