The world of esports prepares for another electrifying season as the ePremier League makes its anticipated return under the banner of the EA Sports FC for the 2023/2024 season. With coveted spots for the UEFA eChampions League and the FC Pro World Championships up for grabs, this season promises unparalleled excitement and fierce competition.
A New Chapter in the ePremier League Legacy
After five successful seasons, the ePremier League is set to kick off its sixth season. What makes this year more significant is the incorporation of the league under the freshly minted EA Sports FC brand. As announced by the gaming giant, Electronic Arts (EA), the top contenders of the ePremier League stand a chance to secure their position in the UEFA eChampions League and the FC Pro World Championships.
Journey to the Crown: Format and Key Dates
The adrenaline-fueled journey begins with online qualifiers slated for November. However, participants should note that qualifier dates might differ based on their chosen club. As the competition heats up, each club will forward two top players to engage in 1v1 matchups, setting the stage for December’s enthralling Playoffs.
Taking the excitement a notch higher, the ePremier League finals will span two riveting weekends. The first weekend, stretching from January 20th to 21st, is earmarked for the group stage finals. From this, the top four clubs will secure their spots in the Grand Finals. However, hope is not lost for the remaining teams, as they get another shot at glory on March 23rd, leading to the Finals on March 24th.
