Fifa confirms London as host city for inaugural eNations Cup

London will host the first-ever Fifa eNations Cup on 13th and 14th April, with 20 nations now lined up to compete in the event.

The eNations Cup is a new addition to Fifa’s growing EA Sports Fifa 19 Global Series, and had originally been intended to feature 16 teams. Fifa has expanded that number, to “allow more member associations a chance to compete on an international stage in eFootball”, according to a statement.

A total prize pool of $100,000 has been set, as well as the chance to win 1,500 series points which will contribute towards qualification for the eWorld Cup later this year.

Teams from all six Fifa confederations will compete in the competition in both 1v1 and an innovative new 2v2 format, on Playstation and Xbox consoles. The whole event will be streamed live across Fifa’s digital channels.
