Time’s running out if you want to register your interest in representing your beloved premier league side at the inaugural ePremier League tournament.


FIFA 19 players have been able to sign up online since last month, but the deadline is fast approaching.

The competition is open to all UK-based EA Sports FIFA 19 players and kicks off on Saturday 5 January, when players will battle it out to compete for their Premier League club in the first of three rounds: online qualification.

Later, there will be live club play-offs and the ePremier League final, which takes place in London on 28 and 29 March 2019. Two competitors, one per platform (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) will represent each Premier League club in the live final. This is part of the EA Sports FIFA 19 Global Series.

All 20 Premier League clubs are represented in the tournament and are calling on fans to compete on their behalf. The ePremier League final will be broadcast live on Sky Sports and across Premier League social media channels.

Commenting on the eSportes scene in Great Britain chief executive of G’finty Garry Cook remarked:

“In the UK we love football and this market is culturally built for a successful run in football gaming.”We are in the middle of a digital mega-trend, there are over 2.2 billion people gaming and about 500 million people who are into e-sports, so it’s a natural transition for a sports-rights holder like the Premier League to talk to a new audience.”This is a billion-dollar industry,” he said. “We are seeing a lot of commercial partners looking to connect with a new audience, the next generation. Everybody’s gaming. In the UK we have seen in excess of 10,000 people watching the tournament and that’s going to continue to build and grow. “It’s important to understand the psyche behind why they game – it’s very sociable and very shareable. It’s a part of this generation.”

Players can register via e.premierleague.com until 23:59 GMT this Friday, 4 January 2019.

Maybe you received the game as a Christmas present, or you’re an experienced FIFA player. Either way, why not register for your chance to represent your favored side?

The ePremier League is open to UK residents aged 16 and above.
