The prize fund for the ePL Invitational was donated to the #PlayersTogether initiative, created by Premier League players as a collective way of generating funds for the National Health Service and distributing them where they are needed most.
The tournament also urged everyone to follow official advice by staying home and saving lives. We would also ask anyone inspired to play FIFA 20 to take regular breaks from gaming, every 45 minutes.
