August 1 – Brazil wrapped up the three-week long FIFA eSports tournament by winning the FIFAe Nations Cup 2022 at the Bella Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Brazil beat Poland 2-1 with a goal in the 90th minute; This is the second time the National Cup has been held. France was the first champion.
FIFA’s sending event opened at the FIFA World Cup in early July with Germany’s Umut Gultekin winning $250,000 in prize money. The second week saw the Spain-based Raiders take home the $100,000 prize as the FIFA World Club Champions.
She took the lion’s share of the $400,000 in prize money, leading Brazil, Italy and France to the finals. The final is the first date of the event that fans have been allowed to watch since 2019.
“The past three weeks have demonstrated the high standards of the community and FIFA’s global potential with a great set-up and fantastic performances from all involved,” said Romi Guy, Business Officer at FIFA.
“Congratulations to all three champions for winning FIFA trophies, beating the world’s best at an international tournament and inspiring the next generation of esports talent.”
All three championships are ‘presented by EA Sports’ and played in the FIFA brand game developed by EA Sports. That partnership will end after FIFA and EA Sports fail to agree a new licensing deal.
FIFA 23 will be the final version of EA Sports’ FIFA trademarked game. EA Sports will continue to develop the game, which will be called EA Sports FC.
FIFA has said it will continue in the esports space, but if it is to prepare the game to challenge EA’s franchise dominance, it must start from ground zero. It will be very challenging for FIFA brand with EA brand, but e-sports is not like football game and FIFA cannot control by owning the rules. The power of EA’s business and marketing model, the information that EA owns and holds, the many licenses it has with other major leagues and clubs, and the millions of copies of the game sold each year make it easy to sell to video gamers. You are more likely to be loyal to the game than to FIFA.
FIFA says it will work with other video game makers on more offerings. He has to go quickly. No partner has been announced yet.
