Setup will allow eligible PS4 participants to participate in eChampions League Global Online Knockout tournaments from March 2 to 3. The top 64 players will be upgrading to a live qualifying event on April 26th and 27th. This stage will reduce the crowd to just eight players ("the world's elite" to borrow EA's phrases) for the live final of the eChampions League, which will be held on May 31
However, this is not the only overlap of the virtual and real football worlds: the eight finalists will also design and deploy players in the league's group phase. In terms of winnings, the winner will receive a $ 100,000 majority in the $ 280,000 stake and 850 EA Sports FIFA 19 Global Series points.
"Building an authentic competition in the UEFA Champions League was the next logical step in the sequel to EA Sports FIFA 19 Global Series expansion for players and spectators," said Brent Koning, EA Sports FIFA Competition Commissioner. "The eChampions League offers FIFA superstars a unique opportunity to represent their clubs at the height of club football."
