EA and FIFA have revealed that the FIFA Global Series esports competition will be returning for FIFA 20, including The Road to the FIFA eWorld Cup, seeing millions compete for a prize pool of over $3 million USD.
"The EA Sports FIFA 20 Global Series is the most inclusive esports competition on the planet," said FIFA Competitive Gaming Commissioner Brent Koning. "Anyone can become a superstar and the opportunity to do so has accelerated with the more than 20 official league partners now in the mix. This connection to global sport drives viewer intrigue, and that positions us well for surpassing last year's 800 million minutes of EA Sports FIFA 19 Global Series content watched."
Competitors need to earn ranking points to qualify for one of 128 seats - split into 64 per platform - at playoff events, earning these through online competitions as well as live events. The top 16 ranked players will then go onto the FIFA eWorld Cup, although there are six Champions Cups throughout the season, an eNations Cup, and an eClub World Cup as well.
