The ePremier League is a newly introduced FIFA esports event, where UK-based FIFA 19 players compete to represent their favourite Premier League clubs. Check out all the ePL (ePremier League) details below…
The ePremier League kicked off on January 5, 2019, for UK FIFA 19 players aged 16 or over. The ePL gaming tournament is currently at the club playoff stage, as online qualification has already happened. The ePL Final will be held in London on March 28 and 29, 2019.
You'll be able to watch the final live on Sky Sports and Premier League social media channels. In January, online qualification required registered players to take on each other to find the best 16 players on each console (Xbox One and PS4). The club playoffs include these 32 players.
The club playoffs kick off on February 11 and finish on March 8, 2019. Any UK FIFA 19 player aged 16 or over was able to register for this event, however registration for this upcoming tournament has now closed. If you fancy your chances for next year's event, make sure you register at the end of 2019.
There is no cash prize on offer for the winner of the ePremier League, but FIFA Global Series points will be awarded, counting towards rankings for the FIFA eWorld Cup in 2019. With the ePL final only next month, check out some more ePremier League details below…
