eSoccer on the upswing? In these largely uneventful football weeks, more and more associations are relying on virtual strength tests at the console.
In addition to various FIFA20 competitions in the domestic leagues, such as the Bundesliga Home Challenge or the ePremier League Invitational, there are also cross-border duels with the eEuro 2020.
This week, the DFB will host a charity tournament on FIFA 20, in which the announced participants can be proud. With a mixture of eSportsmen, football professionals, celebrities and hobby gamers, a wide audience should be offered excitement. The proceeds from the FIFA 20 Charity Tournament will go to the “CHILDREN’S DREAMS” initiative.
E-football, especially the games on FIFA 20, has become increasingly important in recent weeks. It is quite possible that the great interest and popularity of console games will subside in the next few weeks, especially since some soccer players want to start playing again – this also includes the Bundesliga.
Until then, football fans can still have fun with the virtual duels on the console. In the past few weeks, the last four participants in the FIFA20 Charity Tournament of the DFB have been determined. On Thursday evening the FIFA 20 games awaited with great anticipation at the big charity tournament.
