We are proud to announce that we will be hosting four events as part of the EA SPORTS™ FIFA 19 Global Series. The tournaments consist of one FUT Champions Cup and three Licensed Qualifiers. The first event, the Gfinity FUT Champions Cup December, is already being held at the Gfinity Esports Arena in London.
Each of the events form part of the journey that players will take on the road to the FIFA eWorld Cup 2019. The FUT Champions Cup features 64 of the world’s best FIFA 19 players who have qualified through in-game online competitions. The Licensed Qualifiers maintain the same format but feature 32 players across PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
More than 20 million players across 60 countries participated in the EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Global Series. For the 2019 season, new pathways are now available making it easier for players to qualify for the EA SPORTS FIFA 19 Global Series through the introduction of a new EA SPORTS FIFA 19 Global Series Points system.
The FUT Champions Cup and Licensed Qualifiers extend Gfinity’s strong relationship with competitive FIFA, following its recent appointment as Tournament Operator for the inaugural ePremier League. That tournament will feature esports players from each of the 20 Premier League clubs with registration now open for online qualifications. This will be followed by individual club tournaments in January through March, and live finals kicking off on 28-29th March 2019. For more information, visit: https://e.premierleague.com
