Sydney FC has re-signed Premiership winning star e-sports duo FUTWIZ Marko and FUTWIZ Jamie for the E-League 2022 competition, as the Sky Blues look return to winning ways.
The pair won the 2020 tournament as Premiers and will team up again this season when the competition starts on May 7th.
Having represented FUTWIZ at multiple competitions in the 2022 Global Series, they are no strangers to each other, with Marko also recognised as the 2019 E-League Champion.
While Sydney FC have their competitors locked in, the competition has a fresh new look and a revved-up format.
In a first, any eligible EA SPORTS FIFA 22 player can now enter, for the chance to call themselves Australia’s best, and make it all the way to the EA SPORTS FIFA 22 Global Series Playoffs.
“The build up to the E-League Finals in May starts now, with the best EA SPORTS FIFA 22 players in the country getting ready to don their A-League club shirt, excite their fans and compete for glory,” said A-Leagues Chief Commercial Officer Ant Hearne.
“For the first time in the competition’s history we are running a Path to E-League tournament for any eligible EA SPORTS FIFA 22 player to try and get a slot in the E-League Finals, compete against the best in Australia, and star in Australia’s biggest FIFA event.
“EA SPORTS and FIFA 22 are a major part of the football fan journey and at A-Leagues we see great potential in the E-League to connect Football directly to the fan, wherever that fan may be, with entertainment & fan obsession at our core.”
The top two players in the E-League Finals will qualify to represent their A-Leagues club and country in the EA SPORTS FIFA 22 Global Series Playoffs.
And, in another first, this year’s competition will be run exclusively on PlayStation®.
Entries for the Path to E-League tournament are open now and the competition kicks off on Tuesday 29th March, so don’t miss out. Get yourself entered, spread the word.
Players can register for the Path to E-League 2022 event directly via their PS4 console by heading to the ‘Events’ menu and selecting ‘Tournaments’.
Players will then need to link their ESL account to their PlayStation Network account. If they don’t have an existing ESL account, they can create a new one all on the console.
