EA lanserar FIFA 20 Summer Cup Series – miljonbelopp i prispengar



Under veckoslutet presenterade EA och FIFA ett större och mer utvecklat system för EA SPORTS FIFA 20 esport – bland annat nya cuper, ligor och online-turnering så som EA SPORTS FIFA 20 Summer Cup Series och FIFA eWorld Cup. Nämnda Summer Cup Series består av sex regionala turneringar online med inbjudna toppspelare från hela världen som alla tävlar om att bli en av sex vinnare. Den totala prispotten för Summer Cup-serien är $228,000, och turneringarna spelas mellan 17:e juli – 9:e augusti. EA SPORTS FIFA Competitive Gaming Commissioner, Brent Koning, säger i ett pressmeddelande:



“We’ve already seen amazing fan engagement with our competitive events over the past few months. Our partnership with the top football leagues has resulted in over 100 hours of TV broadcasts alone and now we’re looking forward to offering players and viewers even more great competitions to play and watch. Although replacing fan-favorite, in-person tournaments were unavoidable as we prioritize player safety, we are thrilled to have more events this summer than ever before in FIFA esports.”



Christian Volk, Director of Gaming and eFootball på FIFA, säger vidare:

“We are looking forward to rolling out exciting alternative events to the previous FIFA 20 Global Series events over the coming weeks, all whilst ensuring safety and the highest possible tournament standards to the competitors which could not be guaranteed for the initially scheduled events due to the current situation and online-only format limitations for global activations being in place. In these challenging times, we’re committed to supporting our stakeholders, players, fans and the wider community to stay engaged with their audience via EA SPORTS FIFA. We’ll also continue working together with FIFA’s member associations to host eFriendlies all around the world and to bring virtual football to fans in each country.”
