The Premier League and Electronic Arts Inc can announce the return of the ePremier League for the 2021/22 season. Now into its fourth year, the competition gives Southampton fans a shot at glory by winning silverware for the club.
The prize pool for the tournament has increased to £100,000, with three seats on offer for top-ranking players at the EA SPORTS™ FIFA 22 Global Series Playoffs.
Players of all abilities can register now for the tournament and will compete for a place in the Club Playoffs by participating in a series of online open qualification tournaments between November and January.
This year’s competition sees the return of a live ePremier League Grand Final in a venue to be revealed soon, where the two best players from all 20 Premier League clubs will battle it out on 26 and 27 March 2022 (subject to Covid-19 restrictions in place at the time).
There will also be a change to the Grand Finals format this season. Players will work collaboratively as a team for the first time by taking part in a series of 1 vs 1 matches against pairings from other clubs, with one player competing per console.
The competition will be played on next-generation consoles, PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X|S.
