Electronic Arts (EA) have announced a further growth of its competition ecosystem for the launch of the FIFA 22 game next month.
The three competitions featured in the expanded esports ecosystem are the FIFAe Club Series 2022, the FIFAe Nations Series 2022, and the EA SPORTS FIFA 22 Global Series on the road to the FIFAe World Cup 2022.
The new programme will feature both 1v1 and 2v2 competitions, which will allow players to represent themselves, esports organisations, real-world football clubs, and their nation in a diverse set of FIFA esports events.
The first of the competitions to kick off the new season will see qualification start on the 27th of November in the traditional 1v1 competitive format in the EA SPORTS FIFA 22 Global Series.
Players will come from more than 70 countries across 10 global regions with FIFA saying it expects “tens of millions” of participants, making it one of the world’s largest competitive gaming ecosystems.
Endorsement of the competition has increased with more than 30 leagues offering esports programmes that feed into the FIFA series, including the Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga, Ligue 1, MLS, CONMEBOL Libertadores, and UEFA Champions League. Competitors can choose which clubs they want to represent.
The finals of the three main events will be played in the summer of 2022.
FIFA and EA are set to expand its reach and engagement even more by launching this refreshed EA SPORTS FIFA 22 esports ecosystem. Moreover, fans, alongside pro players, will have the opportunity to rise through the ranks, represent their regions, and even make it to the top.
