The Premier League and Electronic Arts are launching the ePremier League (ePL), offering UK-based players the chance to represent their favourite Premier League club for the first time in competitive gaming.

The ePL will start in January 2019 with the final played in London on 28-29 March, 2019, and broadcast live on Sky Sports and the Premier League’s social media channels.

It is the newest league partner to be added to the EA SPORTS FIFA 19 Global Series. The ePL competitive gaming tournament on EA SPORTS FIFA 19 kicks off in January 2019 and players aged 16 and over will compete for three months across three rounds: online qualification, live club playoffs and the eventual live ePL Final.

All 20 Premier League clubs will have a live playoff round allowing two EA SPORTS FIFA 19 competitors, one per platform (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One), the chance to advance to the ePL Final. Registrations for the tournament will open in December.
