FIFA eWorld Cup Betting Guide
FIFA eWorld Cup is the world championship of FIFA. The game has been around for around 20 years and has millions of active players around the globe. And with all this action going on, it’s not surprising that there’s also a professional scene for the truly dedicated competitors.
Like many other competitive games, FIFA has morphed into an esport and provides multiple tournaments each year. The most important of these tournaments is FIFA eWorld Cup, which offers numerous chances to engage in esports betting. If you like to bet on FIFA, there’s no better event to follow than this one.
FIFA is football (soccer) plain and simple. It’s a simulator for playing one of the most famous sports in the world and unlike other games, it seeks to be as realistic as possible. The goal is to score as many goals as possible and concede as few as possible. The competitors pick real teams and always control one athlete. However, they can swap between the players as they attack and defend during a game.
FIFA games generally last much less than real football games. So instead of 45 minutes per half, players have around 10 minutes to confront each other. In the end, the winner takes it all. If required, in elimination matches penalties are included as well in order to separate the two competitors in case of a draw.
FIFA eWorld Cup takes place once every year and brings together the best 32 players in the world. In 2019, the event had a prize pool of $500,000 and was played using the 2019 version of the game (FIFA 19).
For the Group Stage, the competitors were divided into four groups of eight. In each of these groups, the participants competed in a Round Robin format, playing against each of their seven opponents. In the end, the top four players from every group advanced to the Playoffs Stage. As you might be able to tell, this competitive format is very similar to the one used at the actual FIFA World Cup, except there they have eight groups of four instead of four groups of eight. But the rest is identical.
In the Playoffs Stage, the format used is single-elimination. In the Grand Final, there’s one match being played on Xbox One and another match being played on PlayStation 4. The winner is decided by adding the results of both matches.
