The ePremier League is BACK for the 2019/2020 season and we are extremely proud to have been reappointed, by the Premier League, as the tournament operator.
What Is The ePremier League?
The ePremier League is one of the many stops in the FIFA 20 Global Series, as part of the Official League Qualifying Tournaments. Players will compete against each other in order to represent their chosen club - one representative will be chosen from both Xbox and PlayStation. Competitors will battle it out online to reach the club playoffs, where the two players will be chosen (by competing to be the best on their console) and will finally represent their club at the live finals.
The first ePremier League in 2018/19 received thousands of registrations, attracting top talent from all over the United Kingdom. Top-ranked EA SPORTS FIFA 19 player Donovan ‘Tekkz’ Hunt went on to claim the ePL trophy for Liverpool FC in a hotly contested Grand Final in London. The finals were broadcast live on Sky Sports, the Premier League’s Facebook Watch channel and the EA SPORTS FIFA Twitch channel, receiving almost 14 million views.
A hugely successful debut ePL season saw EA SPORTS FIFA players from across the UK compete on PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One.
“Winning the ePL Final for Liverpool FC was one of the most memorable moments of my life,” said Tekkz. “Wearing the shirt of the club I’ve been watching all my life made the win even more special and I have had some amazing experiences since being crowned ePL Champion. I’m looking forward to playing again this year and hopefully winning back-to-back titles for Liverpool.”
Performing well in ePremier League will also earn players the bonus of valuable season-long EA SPORTS FIFA 20 Global Series Points used to qualify for the EA SPORTS FIFA 20 Global Series Playoffs. Competitors intending to participate in ePL who want to also be eligible for these points will need to register on FUTChampions.com by 31 October 2019 or between 16 and 31 January 2020 and be FUT Champions Verified.
The finals will once again be broadcast live on Sky Sports, Premier League channels and EA SPORTS FIFA Twitch channel.
