The best FIFA 21 qualifiers on Xbox and PS4 battle out from today to represent their clubs in the ePL Finals

The next exciting stage of the 2020/21 ePremier League begins this week as the best EA SPORTS FIFA 21 players from around the United Kingdom battle to represent their clubs in the club playoffs.

After thousands of UK-based FIFA 21 players took part in the online qualification on PlayStation 4 and Xbox that started in December, there are just eight per club remaining on each platform, all looking to be the one to represent the club in the ePL Finals in March.

Only the eight best remain on each platform and they will now compete for a place in ePL Finals in March, where there is the trophy and £20,000 prize money on offer to the winner.

Last year’s champion Thomas "Hashtag Tom" Leese will be defending his title as he represents Tottenham Hotspur, while the inaugural ePL champion Donovan "Tekkz" Hunt is again competing for his beloved Liverpool.

Last season’s shock runner-up Marc Marley is looking to go one better with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Other recognisable names from FIFA 21 tournaments going for glory including Jamie "Jamboo" Rigden (Fulham), Spencer "Gorilla" Ealing (Sheffield United), Diogo Mendes (Chelsea), Sean "Dragon" Allen (Manchester United), Reece Rusher (Southampton), Kylem "FUTWIZ Lyricz" Edwards (Crystal Palace) and the Manchester City pair of Ryan Pessoa and Shaun "Shellz" Springette.
