UK FIFA player Tekkz wins second FUT Champions Cup

It's been a breakthrough year for UK FIFA player Donovan "F2Tekkz" Hunt, who won his second FUT Champions Cup on the weekend.

The 17-year-old was taking part in the tournament in Bucharest, Romania, where he picked up $50,000 and 1,500 Global Series points on the road to the FIFA eWorld Cup 2019.

Tekkz beat Australia's Marcus Gomes 4-2 in the Xbox semi-final and Dutch player Ajax Dani Hagebeuk in the Xbox final 6-3.

He then defeated Epsilon Esports' North American player Joksan in the grand final, with a resounding 7-1 scoreline.

It was an emphatic victory for the young Brit, who made a name for himself at the start of the year when Tekkz won his first FUT Champions Cup in Barcelona.

After the win, he hit back at the idea he was a one tournament wonder with these tweets:

Runner-up Dani congratulated Tekkz in a heartfelt tweet:

$200,000 in prizes was handed out overall at the latest official EA esports event.

The UK has a raft of talent in FIFA esports, from players like Gorilla (who won the 2017 FIFA Interactive World Cup) to Shellz, Gfinity Elite Series players like Ryan Pessoa and others, as well as casters Brandon Smith and Richard Buckley to name a few.
