EA Sports and Virgin Gaming have partnered up in an agreement to deliver competitive gaming tournaments with the help of Virgin's "seamless web functionality" on both the PS3 and Xbox 360.

"Competitive online gaming is an increasingly popular component of our industry and a great way for EA Sports and Virgin Gaming to help connect gamers around the world through the global language of sports," said EA Sports Peter Moore.

"Virgin Gaming demonstrates the system-wide integrity we desire, and this is a great opportunity for EA SPORTS fans to experience secure and impeccably managed online tournaments for some of our top titles."

EA plans on hosting tournaments later this year.
