To celebrate the launch of Xbox One, Microsoft retail stores are hosting Xbox One Sports Star Challenges in several U.S. cities and in Toronto, Canada this weekend – and you’re invited to participate. Most of the challenges take place on Saturday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., but see specific details below for each city.

Entrants will see if they have what it takes to beat sports celebrities at games played on Xbox One. There will be prizes given out during the event, and guests can pick up a signed autograph from the celebrity.
