16 June 2020
Building on the FIFA eNations Cup StayAndPlay Friendlies and the EA SPORTS FIFA 20 Stay and Play Cup’s success, EA Sports FIFA eSports team announced the launch of the FIFA 20 Summer Cup Series. These new online, regional events will see the top players from six regions invited to compete in tournaments taking place from July 17 to August 9.
Players from Europe, North America, South America, Asia, Oceania and Middle East-Africa will compete in the Summer Cup Series, which will be broadcasted around the world on twitch.tv/easportsfifa. The top EA Sports FIFA 20 competitors from both platforms, based on the FIFA 20 Global Series Rankings, will be invited to compete in the Summer Cup Series, which will be played exclusively on PlayStation 4 and have $228,000 in prizes available.
The European Summer Cup will have 24 competitors invited and $78,000 in prizes. The other five regions will each have eight competitors invited and $30,000 in prizes. Many of the world's top football leagues, including Bundesliga, LaLiga, Ligue 1, MLS and more, will resume EA SPORTS FIFA 20 eSports events under revised formats in the coming weeks. Additionally, fans will be able to experience the excitement of UEFA Champions League competition through the eChampions League, which will transition to a special one off online invitational event in mid-August. Following the same format as the Summer Series, the eChampions League Invitational will bring together Europe’s best performing tournament champions from the past three seasons of competitive FIFA. FIFA’s member associations will also continue organizing domestic FIFA eSports competition and online internationals to engage their national EA Sports FIFA’s communities.
The FUT Champions Cup Stage VI, FIFA eNations Cup 2020, the FIFA 20 Global Series PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Playoffs and the FIFA eWorld Cup 20 are cancelled.
