By SFC Media time Fri 17 Apr esports

Angus Gunn will be representing Southampton in the inaugural ePremier League Invitational tournament, which begins next week.

Premier League footballers will be putting their EA SPORTS FIFA 20 skills to the test, as they go head-to-head in a knockout tournament which will feature a live show on Sky Sports on Saturday 25th April.

The prize fund 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. The tournament will also continue to urge everyone to follow official advice by staying home and saving lives.
