Players in Britain can seek the chance to represent their favourite Premier League club in the inaugural tournament by going to e.premierleague.com and signing up. Players have until 23:59 GMT on Friday 4 January 2019 to register.
The inaugural ePL competitive gaming tournament kicks off on 5 January 2019. After registering, players aged 16 and over will compete to find the ePL champion for three months, spanning three rounds: online qualification, live club playoffs and the eventual live ePL Final.
In online qualification, registered players will compete to find the 16 best players on PlayStation 4 and the best 16 on Xbox One. These 32 players will advance to the club playoffs.
All 20 Premier League clubs will have a live playoff round, giving two EA SPORTS FIFA 19 competitors, one for PlayStation 4 and one for Xbox One, a final shot to advance to the ePL Final.
The ePL Final will be held on 28 and 29 March, 2019, in London and broadcast live on Sky Sports and Premier League social media channels.
(N.B. This competition is for UK players of EA SPORTS FIFA 19 only.)
UK players will be able to register online for the ePL from this date.
UK players will no longer be able to register online after this date.
Players will compete against each other on their platforms in a cup format to determine the top 16 club playoff finalists for PlayStation 4 and top 16 for Xbox One.
The top 16 players for PS4 and Xbox One will face each other in a half-day tournament to determine the club representative for each platform.
The final will take place in London over two days and be broadcast live on Sky Sports and Premier League social media channels. Matches will take place over two legs in a group-stage format on both PlayStation and Xbox to determine an overall champion.
