REGISTER NOW TO BEAT THE ELIONS*
We’re giving fans across the country the chance to represent England this year and become the official eLions representatives for this year's FIFA eNations Cup.
The ‘Beat the eLions’ online tournament will run on Xbox and PlayStation, with the first qualifier taking place between 2-3 March and the second qualifier running during 4-5 March.
And FIFA fans based in England and aged 16 and over can now register their interest to take part*.
Last year, we held a tournament to find the best two English players – with Fnatic Tekkz and Hashtag Tom Leese coming out on top. Both players went on to represent England at the inaugural FIFA eNations Cup, where they made it to the quarter finals.
Now, the top player on each console from the two March qualifiers, along with the top-ranked English players from the FIFA 20 Global Series rankings, Hashtag Harry (PS4) and Futwiz Lyricz (Xbox), will be invited to the ‘Beat the eLions’ Grand Final on Thursday 19 March.
The tournament, taking place at Wembley Stadium connected by EE, will see the six players battle it out for the chance to get to the final where they will have to take on the current eLions in the hope of taking their place.
“To represent your country is the ultimate honour," said Fnatic Tekkz.
"And I really enjoyed the 2v2 format playing alongside Tom, so much so that we teamed up together at club level. I’m determined to earn my place again this year.”
Hashtag Tom added: “I’m looking forward to getting the chance to defend my title, I hope I can make it through to be an eLion again.
"Me and Tekkz have just made the semi-final of the eClub World Cup and we want to go one step further and lift the trophy for England at the eNations.”
The Beat the eLions Tournament will be streamed live on the official England YouTube channel on 19 March with commentary from FIFA casters Richard Buckley and Brandon Smith, so be sure to tune in.
