The second edition of the E-League gets underway on Thursday night with a number of new faces behind the controller for BRFC.
E-League Season 2 gets underway tomorrow night from 7pm (QLD time) with matches for the first time to be broadcast live on Fox Sport Ch 505, as well as the official E-League Twitch Channel.
The 2019 season will feature FIFA19 on both PS4 and Xbox consoles and will be part of the EA SPORTS FIFA19 Global Series which serves as part of the qualification process to the FIFA eWorld Cup 2019.
Brisbane Roar will be represented by Dylan Banks (@aussiefifahdYT) on the PS4, Andy Phanaouvong (@AKPO_), who was selected by the Club at the E-League Draft, on Xbox, and our Playoff Winner Isaac Havu (@ozilla811) who will be the Club’s substitute.
PS4 representative Dylan Banks says it’s a dream come true to represent Brisbane Roar & he can’t wait for the competition to begin.
“This year I’ve worked hard and I’ve tried to dedicate time into the game,” Banks said.
“To represent Brisbane Roar is a dream, I’ve been hooked with this team, so it’s great to be a part of it.”
Our E-League players will be backed by the Club’s first official E-League partner XP Esports, who have joined forces with BRFC for Season 2.
XP Esports Director Brodie Fisher, who will also support our three competitors as a Player Mentor, is excited for the challenge.
"XP Esports are excited to be part of such a great club with a very successful history,” Fisher said.
“Our goal is to help build the Brisbane Roar into a competitive and exciting E-League team and to create a professional ESport pathway for future ESport stars within Queensland for years to come.”
HOW THE E-LEAGUE WORKS
The E-League Premiership Rounds will be conducted over a nine round period coinciding with the final nine rounds of the Hyundai A-League 2018/19 season. Each Club will play each other Club once in a two-legged tie format with two games being played in each Division (i.e. home and away format on each console).
HOW CAN YOU WATCH?
Each round of the E-League will be broadcast live on Fox Sports Ch 505 & the official E-League Twitch Channel.
