Players of EA SPORTS FIFA 19 in the UK can show off their FIFA skills and represent a Premier League club in the ePremier League (ePL) to be crowned the 2018/19 ePL champion.
The inaugural ePL competitive gaming tournament will start in January 2019. After registering, players aged 16 and over will compete to find the ePL champion for three months, spanning three rounds: online qualification, live club playoffs and the eventual live ePL Final.
In online qualification, registered players will compete to find the 16 best players on PlayStation 4 and the best 16 on Xbox One. These 32 players will advance to the club playoffs. All 20 Premier League clubs will have a live playoff round, giving two EA SPORTS FIFA 19 competitors, one for PlayStation 4 and one for Xbox One, a final shot to advance to the ePL Final.
The ePL Final will be held on 28 and 29 March, 2019, in London and broadcast live on Sky Sports and Premier League social media channels.
