The FIFA 20 Global Series’ top events will be the Ultimate Team Champions Cups from November to May with $200k prize pool. The FIFA eClub World Cup and FIFA eNations Cups both take place in May culminating with the FIFA eWorld Cup in June. The eChampions League is also returning from last season featuring the top verified PS4 players competing for that prestigious title.

Over 20 traditional leagues will participate in domestic FIFA competitions such as the eMLS, ePremier League and eBundesliga.
