EA SPORTS FC to serve as official platform for UEFA eEURO 2024 tournament!

UEFA have announced that, for the first time, EA SPORTS FC, the flagship football video game produced by EA SPORTS, will serve as the official platform for the UEFA eEURO 2024 tournament. The esports competition will showcase the talents of Europe’s best EA SPORTS FC players as they represent their respective UEFA national teams in a battle for supremacy on the virtual pitch.

With a line-up of over 50 UEFA national teams already confirmed to participate, the UEFA eEURO 2024 tournament promises to be an electrifying showcase of skill and competition.

The tournament will begin in March with the online qualifiers. Each nation will employ its own selection mechanism, with many holding player-selection tournaments that will provide some of the best EA SPORTS FC players with the opportunity to compete on behalf of their country. The eight finalists will compete for the title and a share of the $100,000 prize pot at a live event in July.

Aspiring players are encouraged to register for national team player-selection tournaments, with detailed information available here along with the full list of confirmed participating nations.

Guy-Laurent Epstein, UEFA marketing director, said, “Our partnership with EA SPORTS FC offers a significant opportunity for UEFA esports, using the world’s largest football video game platform to host UEFA eEURO 2024. In this new edition of the competition, the large number of national associations that have signed up is proof of their continued interest in this competition, which provides the opportunity to engage with existing and new audiences. UEFA invites fans and gamers alike to be part of this exciting fusion of football passion and the innovative world of esports.”

Sam Turkbas, Commissioner & Senior Director, Football Esports, EA SPORTS, said, “We are delighted that EA SPORTS FC 24 will power the UEFA eEURO 2024 competition. This all-new tournament combines the legacy of over 60 years of UEFA EURO competition with the exciting world of esports, giving European players the opportunity to represent their country in an authentic, national team competition, and be crowned European champion.”

This new tournament solidifies the longstanding relationship between UEFA and EA SPORTS, as EA SPORTS is also a partner of UEFA’s club competitions and UEFA women’s football.

EA SPORTS FC 24 is currently available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. UEFA EURO 2024 will feature in the game through a free update in summer.
