FIFA has announced today that the FIFA eWorld Cup will return to London from August 2nd to 4th.
Having already played host to last year’s FIFA eWorld Cup final, which saw Mosaad Aldossary crowned world champion (pictured), 32 of the world’s best FIFA 19 players will compete once more at the O2.
They will battle it out to become the FIFA eWorld Cup champion and to win $250,000 in prize money, along with a trip to The Best FIFA Football Awards.
The total prize money for the FIFA eWorld Cup has also been increased compared to last year’s final, and a total of $500,000 will be distributed among the 32 competitors.
These 32 players in the FIFA 19 Global Series Rankings will be determined after the FIFA 19 Global Series Playoffs, some of which have taken place in Hamburg (Xbox) and the others will get underway from July 12th to 14th in Berlin (PlayStation).
 

“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.”
Christian Volk, FIFA

 
There is a host of top UK talent in FIFA, including Faze Tass, Hashtag Ryan and the current number one in the rankings: Donovan “TekKz” Hunt to name a few. He was beaten by fellow Brit, Rebel Stokes, 5-3 in the final in Hamburg on the weekend.
On-site guests at the eWorld Cup will also be able to meet well-known faces from the FIFA scene such as Spencer Owen, Mike LaBelle and others.
FIFA has been a topic of debate in the gaming community over the past few years, with the subject of loot boxes drawing concern from parents, governments and the media.
Some countries like Belgium banned loot boxes saying they’re an “illegal game of chance”, while EA has defended them, saying they’re ethical ‘surprise mechanics’. For actual betting, you can bet with Coral.
“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,” said Christian Volk, director of efootball and gaming at FIFA.
“This season, we have seen a great appetite for content consumption of the 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.”
