Now into its fourth year, the competition gives UK-based fans a shot at glory by winning silverware for their favourite club.
The prize pool for the tournament has increased to £100,000, with three seats on offer for top-ranking players at the EA SPORTS™ FIFA 22 Global Series Playoffs.
Players of all abilities can register now for the tournament and will compete for a place in the Club Playoffs by participating in a series of online open qualification tournaments between November and January.
This year’s competition sees the return of a live ePremier League Grand Final, in a venue to be revealed soon, where the two best players from all 20 Premier League clubs will battle it out on 26th and 27th March 2022.
