After the EA Sports FIFA 20 #StayandPlay Cup which concluded with FC Copenhagen’s Mo Daramy taking the win, now there’s another FIFA 20 tournament on its way. The Premier League have announced an inaugural ePremier League Invitational FIFA 20 tournament, where representatives from all 20 Premier League clubs come together to compete in efforts to spread the message of staying home.
The #PlayersTogether initiative was created by Premier League players as a collective way of generating funds for the National Health Service and distributing them where they are needed most.
Among the players competing in the tournament are Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace), John McGinn (Aston Villa), Lys Mousset (Sheffield United) and Diogo Jota (Wolverhampton Wanderers).
The full lineup will be confirmed ahead of the tournament draw, which is happening today, April 20, on “The Football Show” on Sky Sports News and Sky Sports Main Event in the UK from 09:00 BST.
“The thoughts of everyone at the Premier League are with all those directly affected by COVID-19,” said Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters.
“In response to the pandemic, the League, our clubs and players are providing valuable support for communities and the NHS.
“We are also aware of the importance of finding new ways to entertain fans at this time and we are excited to bring together a strong line-up of players for the ePremier League Invitational tournament.” he said.
