“As we are continuously looking for new and exciting ways to engage with the global FIFAe community, we are grateful to host such a competition despite the challenging circumstances.

“We are excited to see the hard work of our competitors throughout a very challenging season come to fruition in such spectacular fashion, in the largest FIFA Online 4 competition to date,” said Piotr Pilich, Deputy Commissioner of FIFA Online 4 at EA.
At the beginning of the tournament, 16 teams who qualified by claiming points throughout the season, competed in a group stage for their place in the knockout stage. Only eight advanced and were narrowed down to the best two teams who faced each other in a “winner stays best-of-five” format in a spectacular final.
The FIFAe Continental Cup concluded the 2019/2020 FIFA Online 4 Season with the first-ever FIFAe Continental Champion being crowned on 20 December. Information about the next season will be released in early 2021.
