Donovan ‘Tekkz’ Hunt and Dan Ray have played their way to the grand finals of the ePremier League tournament to represent Liverpool FC, which will take place from 23-26 March and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports, BT Sport and BBC Sport online.
Battling it out in the online club playoffs, streamed live across LFC’s official YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Tik Tok channels, Tekkz came out on top of the eight players competing on FIFA 20 for XBOX, while Dan Ray was the overall winner of his group of eight playing the popular football videogame on PlayStation 4.
Thousands of LFC fans took part in this season’s online qualification on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The best 16 players from that stage then earned the chance to represent their teams in the individual Club Playoffs to see if they had what it takes to reach the Finals and ultimately be crowned ePL champion 2020/21.
The LFC gamers will now come up against 38 representatives from the other 19 Premier League clubs in the grand finals. The group stages and quarter-finals on each console will take place on 23 and 24 March 2021.
The tournament reaches its climax on Friday 26 March, when the remaining players will take part in the console semi-finals, before the console finals and cross-console final. As well as being crowned 2020/21 ePremier League champion, the winner will take home the grand prize of £20,000.
This is the third year that the tournament has taken place, with loyal LFC fan and top-ranking EA Sports FIFA player Donovan ‘Tekkz’ Hunt claiming the inaugural ePL trophy for the Reds in 2019.
