eMLS Cup is underway meaning the 12 best FIFA 21 players in North America will be locking horns with the 2021 title on the line. Here’s everything you need to know about the competitive esports event. 

  • New York City’s Didychrislito come into eMLS Cup as a strong favorite, and on Day One he absolutely dominated – with an 11-3 win over AlanAvi.
  • George Adamou, the defending champion, cemented his place in the Semi-Finals following a 2-1 win over Doolsta.
  • eMLS Cup Day 2 starts up on March 21 and it’s shaping up to be one of the most exciting to-date.

North America’s biggest competitive FIFA tournament has started up, with a prize pool of $40,000 and a huge gold trophy at stake. eMLS Cup kicked off on March 20 and ends a day later, on March 21.

Placing in the top three during this event will also secure them a ticket to the Global Series Playoffs, and a chance to qualify for the FIFA eWorld Cup later this year, so there’s clearly a lot to play for.

AlanAvi tore up the rest of the competition to make it to the eMLS Cup.

After two days of action, FC Dallas representative ‘AlanAvi’ managed to take down TokyoRift 6-2 in the final.

Alan scored 25 goals (12-2, 7-4, 6-2) in his three sets in the Last Chance Qualifier, making him a worthy adversary in the eMLS Cup, even if he is coming from the last chance qualifier.

Day one recap: Didychrislito hits double figures to set a marker

eMLS Cup has seen its fair share of shocks over the years, but day one of the 2021 finals was pretty much business as usual. Only CisseSZN fell to a shock exit, after beaten in extra-time by Godfather by a 3-2 scoreline.

In the opening game, AlanAvi continued his form from the Last Chance Qualifier. He got off to an absolute flyer, easing past PhilB94 by a 5-2 scoreline. The Toronto FC man mounted a comeback in leg two but it was in vain as the damage was done. Following them, Doolsta overcame Kid M3mito in the battle of former champions with the Nashville SC man taking home the victory with the 3-1 scoreline.


In a more opening affair, Sporting KC’s Alekzandur handed out a lesson in attack, walking all over the Fiddle with a 7-4 aggregate victory. The FC Cincinnati man made it respectable in the end, but Alek was in fine form. A closer game followed as Godfather provided the only shock of the day, defeating CisseSZN and setting up a quarter-finals match-up with his brother, KingCJ.

In the first of two quarter-finals on the day, reigning champion Adamou saw off Doolsta in a close tie, as the Nashville SC man wouldn’t lie down. Though, that wasn’t the case for Didychrislito. He completely walked all over AlanAvi, hitting double figures and showing why he’s everyone’s favorite to win it all.
