The Premier League and EA Sports have launched the third season of the ePremier League, which gives UK-based players the chance to win the title for their favourite club.
Registration for this year’s competition opens at 5pm on Thursday 3 December at e.premierleague.com, with online qualification beginning in January.
Representatives for all 20 clubs will compete to see who reaches the online play-offs, before the live finals take place next spring. The finals will once again be broadcast live on Sky Sports, Premier League channels and the EA Sports FIFA Twitch channel. Over the last two seasons, the finals reached more than 22 million fans.
The competition is open to UK residents aged 16 and over and will once again take place on PlayStation4 and Xbox One. As well as taking home the trophy and a share of the £40,000 prize pot, there will also be seats on offer for top-ranking players at the EA Sports FIFA 21 Global Series European Playoffs.
The ePL evolved during the 2019/20 season, with the introduction of the ePL Invitational tournament while football was suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic. This saw first team players and other famous faces compete on behalf of all 20 Premier League clubs in an online EA Sports FIFA 20 tournament, with Reece James representing the Blues.
