After the Live Finals due to take place at the Gfinity Arena in London in March were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the closing stages of the tournament are now being completed online.

A live show will be streamed from 18:00 BST across the Premier League's digital channels.

Fans will also be able to watch via the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel, Sky Sports Twitch channel, BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website and app, as well as on the official EA SPORTS FIFA Twitch channel. The clubs of the participating players will also be streaming matches live.

Double for Liverpool?

The preliminary stages of the final have been played and defending champion Donovan "Fnatic Tekkz" Hunt will be defending his ePL title on behalf of Liverpool. Ranked No1 in the world on Xbox One, the 19-year-old faces West Ham United’s Jamie "Jamboo" Rigden at the semi-final stage.

"I’m incredibly excited to be heading to the finals of the ePremier League to represent Liverpool FC and ultimately defend my title as champion," said "Tekkz".

"It’s been a phenomenal year of success for LFC, considering we won the Premier League this season, so I hope I can go on to add to the list of trophies by taking home the ePL trophy."

Completing the Xbox side of the draw are Watford’s Alex "Hashtag Shawrey" Shaw and Marc "MarcMarleyyy" Marley, representing AFC Bournemouth.

In the PlayStation4 semi-finals, there is a London derby between Chelsea’s Kyle "Hammond" Hammond and Arsenal’s Tassal "Faze Tass" Rushan. The world No 3 on that platform, Tom "Hashtag Tom" Leese, is competing for Watford and will take on Tottenham Hotspur’s Callum "Callum" Moore.

The winners of those semi-finals will progress to the individual console finals to decide the Xbox One and PS4 winners. The victors will go head-to-head in the grand final to decide who is crowned 2019/20 ePremier League champion.

Prize money

The winner will also take home £20,000 in prize money, with the runner-up winning £10,000. The runners-up of the two console finals will each win £5,000.

"We are delighted to be able to bring the 2019/20 ePremier League season to a conclusion and give competitors the chance to complete the tournament online," Premier League Commercial Director Will Brass said.

"As with the inaugural ePL season, we had a great response from fans and clubs, with the tournament bringing together experienced EA SPORTS FIFA pros and new competitors, giving all those taking part the opportunity to represent their favourite clubs in official competition.

“There is a strong line-up of finalists who will undoubtedly provide thrilling action for viewers around the world to enjoy. I wish those competing the very best of luck and I look forward to seeing whether Tekkz and Liverpool can hold onto their ePremier League title, or if there will be a new champion."

The 2019/20 ePL Finals Day show will be presented by Rachel Stringer, with Ryan Pessoa as analyst and Mark Hatcher and Dan Gaskin as casters. The show will be produced and broadcast from the Gfinity Arena, with all game play taking place remotely.
