EA and FIFA announced their eWorld Cup which will start from August 2018. The video game has close relation to the actual game, simply cause of the low level of training required to understand the game. With most of the esport titles requiring a lot of understanding from the common man, football came as a saviour for anyone looking to invest in esports.
The six tournaments of the FIFA 18 Global Series Qualifiers will decide the 128 players (64 on PlayStation 4 and 64 on Xbox One) who will qualify for the Global Series Playoffs, held in June. From there, 32 players will win their tickets for the final tournament, held in August. It is the second year in a row that FIFA and EA Sports try to completely revamp their main competition. The last tournament had traditional soccer teams with esports departments, such as Manchester City and Schalke 04, invited to compete, a project abandoned for this year’s installment.
