The Premier League and Electronic Arts are launching the third season of ePremier League, which gives UK-based Southampton fans the chance to win the ePL title.

Registration for this year’s competition opens at 5pm GMT on Thursday 3 December at e.premierleague.com, with online qualification beginning in January. Representatives for all 20 clubs will compete on EA SPORTS FIFA 21 to see who reaches the online playoffs, before the live finals take place next spring (dates TBC).

The finals will once again be broadcast live on Sky Sports, Premier League channels and EA SPORTS FIFA Twitch channel. Over the last two seasons, the finals reached more than 22 million fans.

Last season, Saints were represented by Owen ‘SaintsVenny’ Venn and Reece ‘FUTWIZ Rusher’ Rusher for a second successive campaign, with the duo both exiting at the group stage.

The competition is open to UK residents aged 16 and over and will once again take place on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One. As well as taking home the trophy and a share of the £40,000 prize pot, there will also be seats on offer for top-ranking players at the EA SPORTS™ FIFA 21 Global Series (FGS) European Playoffs.

During this season’s online qualifiers, all players will be required to play in 90-rated Online Friendlies mode as their chosen Premier League club. Those who progress to the playoffs and beyond will play on FIFA Ultimate Team™ (using Premier League players only).
