Donovan “Tekkz” Hunt shocked the world, winning an astonishing seven titles in FIFA 19. Let’s relive some of the best moments in what was an impressive season for the 17-year-old wonderkid from Devon:
Early victories in Bucharest
Tekkz’ season got off to a flying start in Bucharest as he won the first FUT Champions Cup of the FIFA 19 Global Series. He took home the top prize of $50,000, comfortably beating Epsilon’s “Joksan” in the finals. This was a big statement from Tekkz, as he defeated the likes of “DullenMIKE” and “Marcus Gomes” earlier in the tournament.
His second victory came only a week later as he lifted the PGL FIFA 19 Cup, which was also held in Bucharest. Tekkz beat PSV’s “StefanoPinna” 2-1 in a tight finals match that had viewers on their feet.
Four trophies in two months
After a hot start in December, Tekkz’ next trophy didn’t come until early February. For the FIFA eClub World Cup he partnered with Argentine star “nicolas99fc”, and the pair did not disappoint as they made easy work of the competition.
Two weeks later, Tekkz won his second FUT Champions Cup of the season in Atlanta, USA. He continued his impressive form in March where he picked up yet another FUT Champions Cup, making it back-to-back victories for the young Brit. Tekkz defeated “Üstün” of M10 Esports 6-2 in the cross-console grand finals, demonstrating his natural talent.
Heading into the ePremier League, Tekkz had won three trophies in just 28 days. It seemed he was in unstoppable form as he was given the chance to represent his boyhood club, Liverpool FC. After finishing the group stages with a 3-1 series count, Tekkz stormed to victory beating Manchester United’s “KyleLeese_” 6-2 in the final.
The final victory of Tekkz’ 2018/19 season came from the same place as his first – Bucharest. He won the PGL FIFA 19 Masters in convincing fashion and took home $10,000. Tekkz amassed a staggering 13,265 Global Series points heading into the FIFA eWorld Cup. This was 3,495 more than any other player, highlighting his sheer dominance throughout the year.
Despite his hot form over the course of the year, Tekkz’ season ended in defeat as he placed 17-20th at the FIFA eWorld Cup, with Germany’s “MoAuba” crowned champion. It was a disappointing end to a fabulous season for Tekkz, and we will soon find out if he can bounce back when FIFA 20 hits our screens on September 24th.
