Konami Digital Entertainment has today announced the return and first details of the eFootball™ Championship 2022, an esports competition open to many different players, ranging from beginners to the elite. Following the game’s name change to "eFootball™", the competition formerly known as "eFootball League” has also been renamed as “eFootball Championship”.
eFootball™ Championship Pro - Starting June 11th
With over 7 million total views on YouTube during last year, eFootball™ Championship Pro is back for its fifth season on June 11th with professional eSports players representing top-notch football clubs. As last year, FC Barcelona, Manchester United FC, FC Bayern München, Arsenal FC, AS Roma, Celtic FC, Galatasaray SK and AS Monaco will be the final eight participating clubs that will battle for raising the exclusive eFootball™ Championship Pro trophy. The Pro participants have been selected by the competing football clubs, with these details set to be announced in the coming days.
This year, the eFootball™ Championship Pro structure will consist in two stages: a Group Stage, with two groups of four teams, and a Knockout Stage, where the two leading Clubs in the Group Stage will pass directly to the Semifinals while the following two teams on each group will face each other on Quarter-Finals. All fixtures in both the Group Stage and the Knockout Stage will have a brand new competition format of three 1-vs-1 online games per match, following a 3-1-0 points system per victory, tie or defeat on the Group Stage, and a best of 3 format in the Knockout Stage.
The professional eSports players who have outstanding performances during the tournament will be awarded with individual prizes like the Best Goal of the Day, the Best Player of each Group and the MVP of the season award. Fans will also have the opportunity to win club goods in various eFootball™ Victory Giveaway campaigns that will be carried out by the Clubs throughout the competition.
Further information on this will be provided in another article on the website.
