Club's representatives for next week's ePL finals hope they and the first team can win trophies

As Manchester City edge closer to a fifth Premier League title, their ePremier League representatives are also hoping to deliver silverware for the club by winning the 2020/21 ePL finals.

Shaun "Shellzz" Springette and Ryan Pessoa will represent Man City in the EA SPORTS FIFA 21 tournament finals from 23-26 March, hosted at London's Gfinity Arena. 

They are among 40 of the best United Kingdom-based Xbox and PlayStation 4 players to have qualified for the ePL finals group stage.

"It's the one event we look forward to as UK pros," says City's PlayStation 4 representative Shellzz. "We want to be there, we want to be the ones representing our clubs."

Pessoa is hoping to take his chance on the Xbox after narrowly missing out on qualifying for the ePL finals last year.

"It’s a massive honour, especially last year because I came up short," he says. "So this year revenge was on the horizon for me. I back myself to go the whole way in the finals."

In Man City’s playoffs, both scored some spectacular goals, and plenty of them, with Shellzz netting 14 times in his semi-final win.

And having played FIFA against Sergio Aguero, Phil Foden, and Oleksandr Zinchenko, Shellzz dreams of being able to emulate the achievements of his real-life heroes.

"The Premier League is looking really good for us right now," he says. "Man City are in great form and hopefully it continues.

"But to get the ePremier League title, it would be a dream, and especially my first trophy for the eSport scene."

Fans in the UK can watch the finals on Sky Sports, BT Sport, BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport online. They will also be shown on Premier League channels and EA SPORTS' FIFA Twitch channel, as well as being made available to viewers around the world by international licensees.
