It’s a dream for every Evertonian - and fans can now sign up to represent the Blues against their Premier League rivals!
Registration is open for the inaugural ePremier League (ePL) tournament, a new eSports competition organised by the Premier League and Electronic Arts Inc.
The tournament will offer UK-based players the chance to compete for and represent their favourite Premier League club on FIFA 19 for the first time ever in competitive gaming.
All 20 Premier League clubs are represented in the tournament, giving players the chance to live their dream of winning a title for their team.
The competition kicks off on Saturday, January 5, 2019 and players will battle it out to compete for their Premier League club across three rounds: online qualification, live club playoffs and the ePL final.
The ePL Final will be played in London on March 28-29, 2019 and broadcast live on Sky Sports and Premier League social media channels.
Evertonians have until 23.59pm on Friday, January 4, 2019 to register for the online qualification round here or by visiting e.premierleague.com.
Richard Masters, Premier League Managing Director, said: “EA SPORTS is a fantastic partner for the Premier League and we are looking forward to launching ePremier League with them.
“We know that millions of fans play FIFA and this new esports competition will provide our clubs with an exciting opportunity to engage with them. We can’t wait to get started with the opening online rounds in January 2019.”
Following the online qualification round, all 20 Premier League clubs will have a live playoff, allowing two EA SPORTS FIFA 19 competitors, one per platform (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One), a final shot to advance to the final.
Performing well in the ePL will also earn players the bonus of valuable season-long EA SPORTS FIFA 19 Global Series Points used to qualify for the EA SPORTS FIFA 19 Global Series Playoffs.
