View from the top: We'll start with a couple of trophy lift photos. Above, Donovan “F2Tekkz” Hunt hoists the FUT Champions Cup November trophy following his resounding victory over Joksan “Joksan” Redona in Bucharest, Romania.
Pure domination: Mossad “MSDossary” Aldossary took home the FUT Champions Cup December in London. The Saudi Arabian competitor has had an incredible run over the last year, winning the FIFA 18 FUT Champions Cup in Manchester and taking home the 2018 FIFA eWorld Cup from last season's final event in London.
All laughs: Just a couple of FUT Champions Cup winners, F2Tekkz and MSDossary, talking shop ahead of their Xbox console final matchup in London.
Sweet emotion: These FIFA 19 Global Series events are no joke. The emotion is real. The intensity is next-level. You can see German competitor Cihan “Cihan” Yasarlar wearing his heart on his sleeve in this photo from November in Bucharest.
Game on: When the stakes are high, emotions run high, too. The proof is in the above capture of a passionate moment for Ivan “Night Watch” Churov.
Center stage: Here's a look at the vibrant main stage at PGL esports studio in Bucharest, the scene of F2Tekkz's recent victory.
Brotherly love: Mo “MoAuba” Aubameyang and Nicolas “NICOLAS99FC” Villalba hug it out following a fierce match in London's December FUT Champions Cup. NICOLAS99FC moved on to the Grand Final to face MSDossary.
Keeping secrets: F2Tekkz isn't giving anything away ahead of his Xbox console final matchup against MSDossary in London.
From the booth: FIFA 19 casters Brandon Smith and Richard Buckley are among the best in the business at what they do. They're clearly locked-in, as you can tell in this still from Bucharest.
Game face: Dani “Ajax Dani” Hagebeuk has one of the more memorably game faces in competitive FIFA. You can't miss him with that eyebrow raise.
