EA Sports Cup 23 Format & Prize Pool

The format of the tournament is pretty straightforward. Teams will start their campaign with the Group Stage and 20 teams will be divided into 4 groups of 5. In the first stage of the organization, which will be played in 2v2 mode, Double Round Robin will be active, meaning that each team in the group will face each other twice. At the end of the matches, the teams that finish in the top 2 places in their groups will qualify for the next round, the Knockout Stage.

Unlike the Group Stage, the second leg of the event will feature a Single Elimination format. The team with a single loss will be eliminated from the tournament.

With each passing year, the amount of prizes on FIFA’s competitive scene increases. This is thanks to both the growth of the scene and the involvement of more sponsors in the esports side of the game. Although the EA Sports Cup is not one of FIFA’s biggest tournaments, it has a prize pool of $250,000. Teams will receive their share of this pool according to their rankings at the end of the tournament.
