E-League 2020 – New Season. New Format. New Venues

The E-League 2020 was officially launched today with a new competition format and venues that will allow fans to truly connect with the competitors.

Under the revamped format the E-League 2020 Season will be played over 11 rounds split over two Saturdays (15 February and 7 March) at the ESL Studios in Sydney (www.eslgaming.com).

The E-league 2020 Finals Series will be held on Saturday, 9 May 2020 at the newly developed Fortress Melbourne, the largest gaming and esports venue in the Southern Hemisphere (www.fortressmelbourne.com).

EA Sports have also confirmed that the E-League is now a League Qualifying Tournament II of the EA SPORTS FIFA 20 Global Series, which provides a pathway for competitors to compete at the FIFA eWorld Cup. As a result, the E-League 2020 Champion will receive 450 Global Series Points, an increase of 250 points from last season.

FFA Head of Leagues, Greg O’Rourke, was excited about the innovations for the E-League 2020 Season.

“After two seasons of the E-League, it was timely for us to reassess and revise our strategy for the future of the competition,” said O’Rourke.

“Following consultation with our key stakeholders, we have landed on a new competition format that will see competitors representing each Hyundai A-League Clubs play each other over two weekends in the regular season to determine the E-League Premiers. The E-League Finals Series will remain as a seeded, knock-out to determine our E-League Champion 2020.

“These event days will be moved from the Thursday evenings we had previously in Seasons 1 & 2 to Saturdays for the upcoming season to allow fans to better engage with the E-League.

“We will also move the E-League to venues that can accommodate fans who want to cheer on their favourite competitors in the flesh.

“The E-League is an important part of our long-term strategy for the Leagues and we are looking forward to an exciting new chapter in the development of Esports in Australia,” concluded O’Rourke.

All matches throughout the E-League 2020 Season and E-League 2020 Finals Series will once again be streamed on twitch (www.twitch.tv)
