The ePremier League Grand Finals take place this weekend, with Southampton duo Michael Fisher and Robbie Wilson competing to claim the club's first ePL title.
The LDN UTD players are representing Saints for the first time, with this season’s tournament seeing the prize pool increased to £100,000, with three seats on offer for top-ranking players at the EA SPORTS™ FIFA 22 Global Series Playoffs.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s ePremier League Grand Finals are the first featuring all finalists at a live venue since the 2018/2019 season, with players competing at Here East in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
There is a change to the tournament format for this year’s Grand Finals. Players will work collaboratively as a team by taking part in a series of 1 vs 1 matches against pairings from other clubs, with one player competing per console, in a two-legged tie.
Clubs are split into four groups for Saturday’s matches, with the top two in each group progressing to Sunday’s knockout stages. The two victorious players in the overall final will win the honour of ePremier League champion for their club.
Saints have been placed into Group C, with Michael and Robbie going up against Leeds, Crystal Palace, Wolves and Man United.
The group stages will take place on Saturday 26th March between 11am and 10pm, with the top two clubs from each group advancing to Sunday's Finals day.
Saints fans can watch Group C action live on southamptonfc.com and on the club's official YouTube channel.
