The tournament features an eclectic mix of teams from social media, esports and traditional sports backgrounds. Popular social starlets UNILAD and Hashtag United have been drawn into the same group, with World Champions Gorilla hoping he and teammate SHELLZ can get the upper-hand against Hashtag's Academy players Ryan and Boras. On the other side of the scale, Team EnVy's Aero and Eisvogel will attempt to uphold EnVy's strong stature in esports, as they come up against Lightning Pandas' Niller and Dragon, who has previously represented West Ham United. As well as these, teams such as FC Basel, PSG and FC Schalke will be fielding players at the event, with all eyes on those players to help bridge the gap between FIFA and football.
The tournament takes place across both Xbox One and Playstation 4, with players playing two games against each other, the "away" leg on their less-preferred console. The group stage uses a Swiss format, with the first person to reach four wins automatically qualifying, and the top four from each group moving on to the single-elimination knockout bracket.
