Virtual La Liga eSports returns

FIFA 19 Global Series

FUT Champions Cup

Following the success of the first edition of FIFA 18 Virtual LaLiga eSports, the official Spanish League Championship tournament returns bigger and better this season, kicking off on December 3. In collaboration with Electronic Arts (EA), LaLiga increases its involvement to bring a bigger, more exciting tournament as the top players compete for prizes including €10,500 for the winner, €5,250 for the runner-up and €2,625 for the semi-finalists. In addition, a €1,000 prize will be on offer to the winner of the King of the Hill match.

Building on last season, which reached more than two million spectators through streams on LaLiga's Facebook Live and Twitch, the second edition of the tournament brings a more competitive format and longer season to keep spectators on the edge of their seats.

It's not only the fans who are looking forward to this new edition of the Virtual LaLiga eSports Tournaments. Banco Santander, Orange and Allianz, together with VISA, EVO2 and the Global eSports Academy have joined forces to sponsor the tournament which promises to be bigger and better than ever.

“Our first experience in competitive FIFA was thrilling. We are very proud to be able to continue with this program together with EA and to press ahead with our vision to introduce a new concept in entertainment and sport. The second edition of Virtual LaLiga eSports will demonstrate our commitment becoming a leader in this sector," stated Alfredo Bermejo, Digital Strategy Director for LaLiga.

Virtual LaLiga eSports is an Official League Partner qualifying tournament within the FIFA 19 Global Series. The regular season will consist of 9 rounds of open competition. Each round lasts 2 weeks, starting with online qualification and leading to a live showdown for the finalists of each round at the LaLiga Barcelona studio. The winner of the Season Opening live showdown will become the reigning ‘King of the Hill’. Every subsequent round live stage event in the regular season will create new challengers attempting to take the crown and become the new ‘King of the Hill’ and win prize money.

During the regular season, points will be awarded for the best performing competitors, and after the 9 rounds have been completed the 16 highest ranking competitors will be invited to the Virtual LaLiga eSports playoffs which lead into the Grand Final on May 11th.
