Tournament format

Thirty-two players are divided into four groups of eight – two PlayStation and two Xbox – where each player will compete against one another over a series of two games. The winner will be decided based on the aggregate score of the two games played during the match.

  • 2 August: Group stage

  • 3 August: Conclusion of group stage, Round of 16 and quarter-finals

  • 4 August: Semi-finals and Final Showdown

The top four from each group with the most points will progress to the Round of 16, followed by the quarter-finals on Saturday. Sunday’s semi-finals will begin in the afternoon in front of a fervent crowd at The O2 in London.

The Final Showdown, featuring the winner of the Xbox final and the winner of the PlayStation final, will have one match played on each console to decide the undisputed best EA SPORTS FIFA 19 player in the world.
