Fox Fans League kicks off around Australia

Football Federation Australia (FFA) has teamed up with FOX SPORTS, EA Sports, PlayStation®4 and Westfield Shopping Centres for a historic nation-wide football challenge – the inaugural ‘FOX FANS LEAGUE’.

The exciting initiative sees FOX SPORTS partnering with gaming giants EA Sports and PlayStation®4 with the support of FFA and Westfield to lay down the challenge to all Hyundai A-League fans and football gamers across the country in the ultimate EA SPORTS™ ULTIMATE TEAM showdown!

The inaugural FOX FANS LEAGUE is a national challenge that will bring together the nation’s best FIFA players to crown a champion on one of the world’s most popular video games, FIFA 15, powered by the world’s most popular next generation home console, PlayStation 4. Representing their favourite Hyundai A-League club, gamers will face an intense qualifying series staged in Westfield Centres around Australia from April 2. 

At the completion of the qualifying series, sixteen of Australia’s best EA SPORTS™ ULTIMATE TEAM masters will then progress to the national final on April 29, to be broadcast nationally LIVE on FOX SPORTS with match commentary from the FOX SPORTS football team.

Further adding to the appeal, PlayStation 4 will celebrate its National Premier Leagues partnership by giving one PS4 NPL a prize of $5,000 and the opportunity to secure a wildcard place directly into the FOX FANS LEAGUE Finals.

The tournament will engage all PS4 NPL clubs in each Member Federation through a socially driven engagement platform which will be housed on www.nationalpremierleagues.com.au and culminate in a unique experience for eight PS4 NPL clubs to decide their representative for the National Finals. For more details on the PS4 NPL wildcard component visit http://www.nationalpremierleagues.com.au/foxfansleague.

Entry details for fans are available at the official FOX FANS LEAGUE competition page at www.foxsports.com.au/foxfansleague
