A 7️⃣ - 1️⃣ performance in the #FUTChampionsCup Grand Final by @F2Tekkz! 😱💪🎮🏆 #FIFAeWorldCup &mdashpic.twitter.com/LWg4XmS980; EA SPORTS FIFA Competitive Gaming (@EAFIFAesports) December 3, 2018
With his 7-1 aggregate win at the first Global Series Major event of the FIFA 19 competitive season, F2Tekkz took home $50,000 USD and earned an extremely valuable 1,500 Global Series points as the Road to the 2019 FIFA eWorld Cup kicked-off in Bucharest, Romania.
In a matter of about 11 months, F2Tekkz has gone from a virtual unknown to establishing himself as a superstar in the FIFA competitive scene. He came out of nowhere last January shocking community with a FIFA 18 FUT Champions Cup win in Barcelona.
Anyone who said that the United Kingdom native might be a one-tournament-wonder was proven wrong by his win in Bucharest, and F2Tekkz took to social media to let it be known.

The young star knows how to entertain, too. He stated in his post-game interview during the broadcast that in the final minutes of the match he showed off some of his skill moves with the left stick to show give viewers a show because he was winning by such a large margin. Now, that is some swag right there.
F2Tekkz's opponent in the Grand Final, Joksan, was riding a wave of momentum following his victory just a few weeks ago at the Playstation 4 Continental Cup in Paris.
Joksan dominated the Playstation 4 console playoffs in Bucharest, tearing through worthy competitors like veteran August “Agge” Rosenmeier and Victor “SPQR T0RE” Santos on his way to the final showdown against F2Tekkz. But at the end of the day, Joksan's inexperience on the Xbox One console was revealed when F2Tekkz scored four goals in the final leg of the match. The American runner-up still took home $30,000 USD, and according to his social media, he's going to spend some of that cash wisely. Ahem, on an Xbox One.
I’m just hoping NOBODY put money on me in the Grand Final... jokes aside I’m absolutely amazed by my performance back to back PS4 Champion and one step closer to the FeWC Grand Final 🙌🏼— Joksan Redona (@JoksanRedona) December 2, 2018
Gg @F2Tekkz🥇🏆 what an amazing player and person.. see you in London in 2 weeks 🔥
Joksan is definitely one to watch this season as his consistent success in early FIFA 19 tournaments has put him on the map as a true contender.
One shock of the FIFA 19 FUT Champions Cup November was the rise of a newcomer to the competitive FIFA scene, Victor “SPQR T0RE” Santos. After upsetting tournament favorite Nicolas “FCB NICOLAS99FC” Villalba in the Knockout Stage on Day 2, the Brazilian advanced all the way to the Playstation 4 Semi Finals before falling to Joksan by just a one-goal margin.
