Thousands of UK-based FIFA 21 players start their quest to represent their favourite Premier League club from today as online qualification for the 2020/21 ePremier League begins. And it’s not too late to join them and compete in front of millions at the Finals in March.
Residents in the UK aged 16 or over have until 15 January to register to take part in the competition, where there is £40,000 prize money and seats on offer for top-ranking players at the EA SPORTS™ FIFA 21 Global Series (FGS) European Playoffs.
Even if you are not a professional FIFA player, the ePremier League offers a great chance to improve your game. So says 2019/20 ePL champion Tom "Hashtag Tom" Leese, who was a surprise winner of the competition after failing to qualify for the previous season’s Finals.
"My top tips for people looking to improve at FIFA would be to watch gameplay, to watch other people play and see what they are doing in their game that you might not be adding in yet,” Hashtag Tom says.
"Definitely to play against people that are better than you.
"You might have to take a few losses on the way but you will only improve by losing."
