Once again, The O2, London, is set to host the FIFA eWorld Cup from August 2-4 after crowning Mossad “MSdossary” Aldossary as World Champion last year.
The event will see 32 of the world’s best FIFA 19 players go head-to-head, the finalists determined in the FIFA 19 Global Series Playoffs which end July 14th.
Christian Volk, Director of eFootball & Gaming at FIFA, said: “After the incredible success of the tournament last year at The O2 in London, we are excited to once again host the FIFA eWorld Cup at such an iconic venue and to create a one-of-a-kind EA SPORTS FIFA event for the community. With the increased prize money and a world title on the line, the tension will be higher than ever before and will create an incredible atmosphere.
”This season, we have seen a great appetite for content consumption of the EA SPORTS FIFA 19 Global Series and we are excited to give more fans the chance to witness the greatest competitive FIFA event to date either on-site or at home, as we crown the ultimate champion at The O2 after an exciting season.”
The tournament is going to be handing out a total $500,000 prize pool, including $250,000 to the eventual winner. All eyes are on players such as MSdossary, Donovan "Tekkz" Hunt and Nicolas "Nicolas99FC" Villalba to take home the top spots, having been some of the top players over the last season.
