DFL organises Bundesliga Home Challenge eFootball tournament for football-free period!

DFL Deutsche Fußball Liga will host the “Bundesliga Home Challenge” over the next two weekends. 26 clubs from the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 will take part in the eFootball tournament starting on March 28. The game is played in the football simulation FIFA 20 by EA SPORTS. The teams from the participating clubs will comprise two members – a professional footballer and another person from the club environment, who will demonstrate their skills on the console.

All matches will be played on the PlayStation 4 in online mode, so the participants usually play their matches from home. The “85 mode” guarantees that all teams have the same player rating of 85, so all teams have the same chance of winning. One game lasts about 25 minutes, two games per match are played individually. The “Bundesliga Home Challenge” is not included in any official sporting classification. The Virtual Bundesliga (VBL), an eFootball competition organized by the DFL since 2012, on the other hand is taking a break. The VBL Grand Final, which was originally planned for this weekend as a presence event, has been postponed due to the current spread of the corona virus.

For those who want to see it live: The stream will start on Saturday and Sunday (28 and 29 March 2020) at 3:30 p.m. CET on the Virtual Bundesliga YouTube channel.
