ePremier League Kicks off Today so Football Fans Can Stop Moping About for Five Minutes | Kotaku UK
What is life without football? As an expert on all things ball-related, not being able to watch millionaires play a spot of footie in matching outfits has been a burden we’ve all had to shoulder while the season has been inexplicably put on hold.But thank Christ for video games, where we can finally focus on the important things in life again thanks to the ePremier League Invitational tournament.
Representatives from all 20 Premier League clubs will come together to duke it out in FIFA 20.The competition will run for the duration of the week, and the first round one kicks off today with eight team representatives going head to head.There are five rounds in total, with semi-finals/ finals taking place on Saturday, April 25.
Fans can tune in to watch on the Premier League website and app as well as its YouTube , Facebook and Twitter channels.You can also see the festivities over on the Sky Sports YouTube and Twitch channels, and the Football Daily YouTube channel.There are four matches a day that will start airing at 12pm from today until Friday.The prize fund is going straight to the NHS so it’s all for a good cause, and we may see some drama from fossilised old men who don’t understand how eSports work and will potentially rage quit or start casually mouthing off with racial slurs in the middle of a stream .
