Here’s our Ultimate Guide to the E-League competition!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The E-League is an initiative designed to connect players of the FIFA18 game with the A-League. Each A-League club has two players — one PlayStation 4, one Xbox — who compete in a tournament where each club faces each other once, with professional players playing FIFA against one another.
The clubs were able to select one of their competitors directly, and one via the FFA E-League draft.
Interestingly, injured winger Mitch Austin is one of Melbourne Victory’s competitors, while Adelaide’s Xbox representative Jamie O’Doherty is the brother of Reds midfielder Jordan O’Doherty.
