SINK YOUR THUMBS INTO E-SERIES GAMES

FOOTBALL VICTORIA TO ENTERTAIN WITH A FIFA 21 E-SERIES COMPETITIO­N

- By Liam Nash FV eSeries

Do you consider yourself a soccer sensation as well as a FIFA phenom?

If so, it’s time put your skills to the test.

With 11-a-side action brought to a standstill throughout the state due to COVID-19 lockdown, Football Victoria (FV) is encouragin­g members housed under its banner to hit the virtual pitch with the launch of its statewide FIFA 21 E-Series competitio­n.

To enter, participan­ts must be registered with FV or be part of a FV club-associatio­n, meaning the competitio­n is open to players, officials, referees and administra­tors only.

Separate tournament­s will be held on PlayStatio­n and Xbox, with places available in 16-and-under and open age categories.

First place in each category will receive $400 cash, the runner-up earning a $150 voucher.

“The tournament will kickoff on September 13 and include two qualifying weeks,” a FV statement read.

“The winners of each qualifying round will progress to the finals series starting on September 27 and culminatin­g in the grand final on

October 3, where we will crown our grand champion.”

Entrants will need each of the following to stake their claim for FIFA glory: a console (Xbox or PlayStatio­n), a copy of FIFA21, a PlayStatio­n Plus or Xbox Live account and a Discord account.

Owning a Twitch account is recommende­d with the potential to have your game streamed as a feature match.
