What you need to know
In addition to all the other FIFA 20 tournaments happening, professionals are also getting involved in the ePremier League. Each Premier League club will be represented by one of their professional footballers who will be playing at home. They will all battle it out in a knockout tournament to discover which team has the best FIFA 20 skills.
Premier League stated the following: “The prize fund for the ePremier League Invitational tournament is being donated to the #PlayersTogether initiative, which was created by Premier League players as a collective way of generating funds for the National Health Service and distributing them where they are needed most.”
A full line-up of those competing will be released ahead of the draw on Monday. Many teams have already confirmed who will be representing their club. Lets take a look at some of the names announced so far:
Moussa Sissoko (Tottenham Hotspur)
