This is the last major before FIFA 20 and will determine the true king of FIFA 19, with a combined prize pool of $500,000 there is no room for error on this occassion. Spectators will no doubt be curious as to what to expect, so we've gathered the essential information for you such as the FIFA eWorld Cup 2019 dates, tickets, prize pool, schedule, times, venue, groups, format and much more.
Last year, Msdossary came up trumps with a clean 4-0 win over Belgium's StefanoPinna. Both competitors have won at the Gfinity Arena in London this year and are in good shape to equal their efforts again. However, it's fair to say that this year has been all about F2Tekkz, this season alone he has won on several occassions including 3 FUT Champions Cups and the inaugural ePremier League. The rivlary between Msdossary and F2Tekkz has been brewing throughout the year and it would be a fitting end to a great season at the FIFA eWorld Cup 2019 Final.
