It’s worth noting that the tournament is running a cross-console format, so for every matchup, one game is played on Xbox and one on Playstation. That way, every competitor is on a level playing field and there’s no risk of anyone gaining an unfair advantage.

FIFAe World Cup Prize Pool

Each of the 32 competitors taking part in the FIFAe World Cup is fighting for a portion of the $500,000 prize pool.

While this huge reward will be split up amongst the top-performing players at the event, the winner will be taking home a whopping $250,000 in prize money.
