eChampions League 2022
The eChampions League is one of the biggest esports events for FIFA. It pits some of the best players across Europe against each other. The eChampions League 2022 had a prize pool of $280,000 on offer. That’s a substantial prize for the players who manage to make it through to the finals.
64 payers in all entered the eChampions League from the qualifiers in February. Their first test was the group stage. Here all countries represented were split into two blocks, Western Europe or Central and Eastern Europe. They competed in a Swiss format before the top 16 from each side moved to the Knockout Stage.
The Knockout Stage began quite a bit after, starting April 23-24th. The Knockout Stage was a Double Elimination bracket that narrowed competitors down to the Top 8. That’s where we finally catch up to this weekend’s action. Players have been through all those stages to make it through to the Grand Final bracket.
