The Football Federation Australia or FFA has announced the e-League – a premier competition for the region’s elite FIFA competitors to represent the Hyundai A-League’s elite top tier clubs. Each A-League club will have two competitors – one chosen by the club directly and one selected via draft process. The e-League will kick off on 1st February 2018 and will run for the last 9 rounds of the Hyundai A-League which will lead into a tournament-style final event in April.
FFA Chief Executive Officer David Gallop said:
“EA SPORTS FIFA is the most popular sports videogame in the world, with a huge following in this country including a broad base of participants who play many sports. This is an advantage that football has over other major sports in Australia and we will make the most of it.”
The draft process invites interested players from the scene to register. Players will be selected based on different combining factors including their FIFA Ultimate Team rankings. If you’re interested in registering or want to learn more about the e-League – you can check out the site here.
Melbourne City FC has already selected 20-year old Marcus Gomes to represent their club after signing the player in August 2017.
