What's the format for the group stage matches?
Groups are seeded according to the two players’ combined FGS Points from the FIFA leaderboard as of 20 March 2022.  

In each group, two matches of FIFA 22 will be played between the same four players from the two clubs, with the aggregate score of the two matches determining the winner.

The first match will be played between the two clubs' Xbox players, with the second match played between same two clubs' PS5 players.

How are points awarded?
Clubs will receive three points for winning a match, one point for a draw, and no points for a defeat.

Who qualifies for knockout round?
Clubs will play each other once to determine who goes through to the knockout round. The two highest-finishing clubs in each group will qualify.

What happens if two clubs finish level on points in a group?
Where two clubs have equal points at the end of the group stage, the following tie-breaker procedure will apply to determine, which club qualify:
- The club with the best head-to-head record of the two equally ranked clubs;
- The club with the best overall goal difference at the end group stages;
- The club who won the most matches during the group stages;
- The club who scored the most goals during the group stages; 
- If the clubs cannot be separated by any of the rules above, the League will organise matches between those clubs to determine who qualifies 

What's the format for the knockout round?
The eight qualifying clubs for the knockout round will be seeded according to their finishing position in each group.

Clubs will play matches against each other in the same format as the group stages, with the winner progressing to the next round.

What happens if a knockout match ends in a draw?
Where a knockout round match ends in a draw, as in the aggregate score of the two matches is equal, extra-time and a penalty shootout (if required) will be used to determine the winner.

The platform used for extra-time and the penalty shootout (if required) shall be determined by a coin toss before the start of the match.

Matches will continue until one club remain, with this club becoming the winner of the "ePremier League Grand Final" and therefore the "ePremier League Champion".

What is at stake?
As well as battling for the honour of becoming ePremier League Champion there is a £100,000 prize pool up for grabs too.

The four competitors from the top two clubs will also earn spots in the EA SPORTS FIFA 23 Global Series Playoffs and Play-Ins.
