Ex-Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, aims to beat the boredom as he links with COPA90 for a new FIFA 20 challenge. Rio made the announcement on Twitter as he looks to search for the ultimate FIFA player:
What is this FIFA 20 challenge?
The goal of this new and exciting challenge is to raise money for charity. The matches will be played between some of the world’s best footballers (not FIFA players) in a bid to see who is the best on the sticks.
Ferdinand announced he has contacted his football friends and we will be seeing some of the best ballers go head to head.
The first match-up has recently been announced. Manchester United full-back, Aaron Wan Bissaka, will face off against Burnley forward, Dwight McNeil.
How can I watch it?
With not all details announced as of yet, it is expected that the matches will be played frequently each week. Ferdinand will be hosting the challenge in a series of episodes on each channel.
