The ePremier League finals, postponed in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has been rescheduled for next week.

Back for a second season, the EA SPORTS FIFA 20 tournament will see the 40 finalists from the club playoff stage battle it out to claim the ePL title, with all 20 Premier League clubs represented.

Representing Saints for a second successive year, Owen ‘SaintsVenny’ Venn (PlayStation) and Reece ‘FUTWIZ Rusher’ Rusher (Xbox) will begin their finals campaign on Thursday 13th August and Friday 14th August respectively.

Originally scheduled to take place at Gfinity Arena in London, the competition will now head online, with supporters able to follow scores and fixtures via e.premierleague.com.
