FIFA is coming to the Gfinity Elite Series and Challenger Series.
Season 2 of the Gfinity Elite Series will conclude this weekend, with the finales of Counter Strike and Rocket League.
Already, Envyus have taken home the title of Street Fighter V, defeating Prophecy in the Grand Final.
Season 3 is now looking even more tantalising, with news that a fourth game, FIFA, will be added to the roster of games teams can compete on.
That now means the eight franchised teams will be seeking FIFA representation for the upcoming season, kicking off in March 2018.
Speaking on the Gfinity website, Gfinity CEO Neville Upton said:
Gfinity is the first esports company to secure an EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Global Series license and we are excited to build on our long-standing relationship with EA. The addition of the hugely popular FIFA 18 to our game line-up adds a very enticing dimension to The Elite Series.
Gfinity broke the news November 6th via their Twitter account

Gfinity recently confirmed their expansion of the Elite Series into Australia, with the announcement of a Gfinity Australia CEO and the names of the seven franchised teams — all from locations around the country.
Britain has been a major force in FIFA for a number of years now, with UNILAD’s Gorilla winning the 2017 FIFA Interactive World Cup.
