Jota to face Leicester man in ePremier League Invitational

Diogo Jota will represent Wolves at the Premier League’s inaugural ePremier League Invitational tournament, kicking off on 23rd April.

The Portuguese will face Leicester City's Wilfred Ndidi at 12pm on Thursday 23rd April, as he begins his quest to be crowned the ePremier League Invitational champion.

The prize fund is being donated to the #PlayersTogether initiative, created by Premier League players as a collective way of generating funds for the National Health Service and distributing them where they are needed most.

The tournament, streamed live on Wolves TV here and Wolves eSports Twitch here, will also continue to urge everyone to follow official advice by staying home and saving lives.

"The thoughts of everyone at the Premier League are with all those directly affected by COVID-19," said Premier League chief executive Richard Masters.

"In response to the pandemic, the League, our clubs and players are providing valuable support for communities and the NHS.

"We are also aware of the importance of finding new ways to entertain fans at this time and we are excited to bring together a strong line-up of players for the ePremier League Invitational tournament.

"With Sky Sports screening the competition live in the UK and many of our international broadcast partners also showing the matches, fans around the world can tune in and enjoy the action.

"We know how popular FIFA 20 is with players and I am looking forward to seeing who will be crowned the ePL Invitational champion."

Jota and Ndidi are joining the likes of Raheem Sterling, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Wilfried Zaha, who will all represent their respective clubs. 

The opening rounds take place between 21st and 24th April, before the semi-finals and final take centre stage on Saturday 25th April.

Wolves fans will be able to watch the action throughout the week on Wolves TV.
