As the return of the ePremier League is announced for the 2023/24 season, here is all you need to know.
Who can participate in the ePremier League?
The competition is open to UK residents aged 16 and over.
After registering, players compete in a series of online qualification tournaments, with only the best advancing to the Club Playoffs.
From there, each of the 20 Premier League clubs will narrow down the competitors and take forward two players, one per console, to represent them across the two Finals weekends on 20 and 21 January and 23 and 24 March.

The group stages will take place on 20 and 21 January, with the four leading clubs booking their spots in the Grand Final.
