Football Federation Australia will introduce a new e-League that will connect fans of the global phenomenon EA SPORTS™ FIFA 18 game with the Hyundai A-League. The FFA’s e-League will be the premier competition for the region’s elite FIFA 18 competitors to represent the Hyundai A-League’s elite top-tier clubs to determine a new e-League champion for both Xbox and PlayStation.
In partnership with the Hyundai A-League clubs, the e-League will begin on 1 February 2018 and run for the last nine rounds of the Hyundai A-League. This provides for each club to play each other once and will end in April with a tournament-style final event.
Each club will have two e-League competitors, with clubs choosing one competitor directly and the other via a draft. The draft process invites interested competitors to register their interest as a first step. Top competitors will be selected for the draft based on a combination of factors, including their FIFA Ultimate Team Rankings. The aim is to get the best competitors in the country representing Hyundai A-League clubs.
