The 2019/2020 season is expected to run from January through to May, and will continue to connect the excitement of esports and the passion for football.
With over 16,000 inscriptions in the nine qualifying tournaments in 2018/19, the new season promises to be filled with new additions and improvement.
There will be an initial online sign-up in which fans will be able to join a LaLiga Santander or LaLiga SmartBank club and, as well as three online tournaments, with two live tournaments.
The different phases will allow participants from all around Spain to rack up points and progress on a national leader board, the highest-ranking at the end of the season will qualify for the Grand Final in May, which will also be a live event.
One of the players last season, Levante UD player Daniel Aguilar, who came third last year, said,
“There are incredible emotions involved when you play in this tournament, which is the best in Spain.”
With the continued expansion of LaLiga’s internationalisation process, the eLaLiga competition will reinforce the organisation’s commitment to connecting LaLiga fans all over the world and to the experience of the EA Sports FIFA 20 Global Series within the eSports universe.
So, how can potential players register?
Players can register at FUTChampions.com on or before October 31 or between January 16 and 31 to be eligible to participate in the tournaments within the FIFA 20 Global Series, including eLaLiga.
Also, the players who get the best performances in the eLaLiga will earn points that will help qualify them for the Global Series Playoffs.
eSports and new technology are two of LaLiga’s main commitments, as shown by the fact that the sponsorship agreement with Electronic Arts was recently renewed up until 2023/24 season.
eLaLiga will be looking to record even more incredible figures in 2019/20, which is why the competition will be available on multiple platforms, such as LaLigaSportsTV, Twitch, Facebook Live and LaLiga.com.
