EA Sports' FIFA 14 is on sale now and last week, four of Newcastle's players and 64 fans got a sneak preview of the game at Nine bar.

Loic Remy, Papiss Cisse, Tim Krul and Davide Santon battled it out to become the Magpies' FIFA 14 king while the supporters also took part in their own tournament.

Watch this exclusive nufcTV video to find out who won the players' competition.

The fans' contest was won by Robert Gray, who won a signed shirt and a VIP day at the Hull City match. He had this to say about the evening and his prize:

"I arrived at Nine bar not ever really foreseeing how the night was going to end up. I was expecting to get knocked out early as there were a lot of people competing and I never really thought I would go on to win the event.

"There were some really tough opponents throughout the tournament who were great at FIFA but luck was on my side in a few games that I played. I narrowly escaped the group stage and then won on penalties against an opponent in the quarter final which helped, but sometimes you've just got to have an extra bit of luck to your opponent when you play FIFA - just like in real life.

"Overall I found the night very enjoyable as it was great to have a bit of banter with other players about the game.

"The hospitality match day experience was also great. It was brilliant to get an inside look at St. James' Park on a match day and to go pitch side to watch the players prepare for the game. The catering and service from the staff at the ground was also really good, as staff were very helpful and willing to explain any questions that we had.

"The food and hospitality was excellent as there was a vast array of choices to pick from before the match which suited everyone. Everything was perfect, apart from the result, but the experience was really enjoyable."
