Group B at a glance


  • NoFuchsGiven eSports (England)

  • Tricked Esport (Denmark)

  • FaZe Clan (USA)

  • Imperial (England)

With three eSports organisations and Christian Fuchs’ eSports team, Group B contains some very interesting sides, as well as former world champions, Grand Finalists and one of the youngest pairs in the history of the FIFA eClub World Cup.

We take a look at the four teams in Group B.

NoFuchsGiven eSports (England)

Having faced each other in the Final Showdown of the FIFA Interactive World Cup back in 2016, Sean Allen and eventual 2016 champion Mohamad Al-Bacha are joining forces to represent Christian Fuchs’ eSports team at the FIFA eClub World Cup 2019. Twelve players currently play for the London-based club that Christian Fuchs founded after seeing his son follow a professional player online. The team’s previous tournament experience makes them one of the dark horses to clinch the title.

Tricked eSport (Denmark)

The Danish eSports team is represented by 'Mikkelhjorthbach' and Jacob 'Tricked Esser’ Jensen. Tricked eSport boast a successful history that includes two world champions in 2014 and 2016. While the club’s current pair are very young at just 16 and 17, both of them have already delivered some impressive performances.

FaZe (USA)

The only American team at the FIFA eClub World Cup 2019 will be represented by Tassal Rushan, who signed with FaZe six months after qualifying for the 2017 Grand Final, and Lev Vinken, who could face his former club AFC Ajax at the tournament. Both players have already impressed at this year’s competitions and are among the favourites to lift the trophy.

Imperial (England)

Maltese player 'ChristianSpiteri' and Englishman 'Lyricz vs Luck’ have already notched up several successes this season and are both currently in the top 30 of their respective FIFA 19 Global Series platform rankings. While this English club may not be on many people’s radar, it will be interesting to see what impact they can have on this group.
