With the FIFA 21 officially underway, and millions of players across the world looking to create the best squad possible on Ultimate Team, we take a look at this season’s schedule for the FIFA 21 Global Series and, the pinnacle of FIFA esports, the eWorld Cup.
This year, EA SPORTS will be providing $3 million to competitors across multiple regions, with the biggest winners taking home the lion share of the cash at FIFA majors and, of course, the eWorld Cup.
There are many different leagues, tournaments and events that players can compete in throughout the season, so let’s take a look at everything you need to know.
The FIFA 21 Global Series is the circuit in which all aspiring competitors can try to make a name for themselves and qualify for the major tournaments.
Between November 2020 to June 2021, every major region will have a number of qualifying spots up for grabs to reach playoffs.
Each region will have the following number of qualifiers, though no more than 1024 entrants can take part in one qualifying tournament.
All qualifiers will be double elimination, and players will be seeded based on Global Series Points — you can scroll down this page to find out how to compete in Global Series events and earn more points.
