Premier League Footballer Christian Fuchs Launches Esports Team and the Name is Incredible

On the heels of winning the Premier League, Christian Fuchs announces that he will be starting an esports team that will feature a professional FIFA team. 

While other professional football players have been streaming themselves playing Fortnite online, Fuchs has been eyeing the professional FIFA landscape. 

The Leicester City defender will be the first Premier League player to have his own esports team, though ownership of several other rival football clubs have expressed interest in joining the League of Legends professional realm. 

Many sports organizations have already gotten involved in the growing competitive gaming world including the Texas Rangers, Cleveland Cavilers, and Los Angeles Rams. 

Fuch marks his entry in fashion by announcing the team’s name, ‘No Fuchs Given.’

At this time it is unclear which titles he intends to expand into; however, the insiders at dailymail believe he is looking to expand beyond FIFA.

In the interview with the dailymail, he did mention he was a huge fan of Overwatch and Fortnite so it is possible that ‘No Fuchs Given’ could expand into those arenas.

Given the ongoing eWorld Cup, it is unlikely we will see a team announcement for this year’s edition of the popular sporting game. 

It appears as if something may already be in the works, though as Fuchs tweeted out for fans to “get ready.”

The new team will likely see itself in headlines, if for no other reason than its controversial name. 

Fuchs is the latest major sports figure to get involved in the booming industry, but we could see more announcements like this in the future. 

As more details on this arise, we will have updates.  


How to complete Alessandrini Flashback SBC in FIFA 21: solutions & cost

A new Flashback SBC is available in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team for French Winger Romain Alessandrini, celebrating his goal-studded 2017-2018 seasons for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

SBC’s are a great way to fill out your card collection in FUT, and if you’re in need of something new on the outside, Alessandrini might be just the man you’re looking for.

Now playing for Chinese Super League team Qingdao Huanghai, the Winger notched two of the best seasons in his career while playing for the LA Galaxy in the MLS (13 goals in 2017 & 11 in 2018), which this new Flashback card harkens back to.

Fans who played Ultimate Team in FIFA 18 will remember how good the Frenchman’s cards were – almost everyone had either his first or second In-Form on their bench as a super-sub, and his nationality made it easier to even start him, for those who wanted to.

Alessandrini Stats
Stats for Alessandrini’s Flashback SBC in FIFA 21.

To start off, just check out that 92 Pace on an 85 OVR card. You really couldn’t ask for anything better with 91 Sprint Speed and 93 Acceleration. Shooting, Passing, and Dribbling also all clock in at high to mid-80s as well.

Defending and Physicality are his weak points, but the good news is that there’s only one single challenge you have to knock out in order to wrap up this SBC and grab the fleet-footed Frenchman’s new card for yourself.

Alessandrini Flashback SBC requirements, solutions, cost.

Altogether these tasks should run you around 92,000 to about 105,000 FUT Coins to complete, which isn’t too shabby at all considering the Acceleration and Sprint Speed stats he’s packing. The full requirements are listed below:

Romain Alessandrini

  • Number of players from France: Min 1
  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

Below are a couple of the cheapest solutions we’ve found to this Flashback SBC, and to make things even easier they don’t require any loyalty to complete.

Now that you know all there is to know about how to knock this SBC out, the only question left is: is it worth it? Looking at the stats alone, especially that 92 Pace, we’d definitely say this SBC is worthwhile if you can afford to complete it.

If you can muster up the coinage prior to the challenge expiring on Friday, December 4, then definitely look into it because this could be a highly-coveted super-sub that you can’t get your hands on later.
