Norwich City Crowned as 2021/22 ePremier League Champions

Norwich City have been crowned the 2021/22 ePremier League Champions, with Damien ‘Damie’ Augustyniak and Jack ‘GoalPoacher_’ Wignall winning the title for the Canaries! The EA SPORTS™ FIFA 22 finals were held in-person for the first time in three years, and was broadcasted live on Sky Sports and EA’s Twitch channel. The tournament was a thrilling journey that concluded in an even more exciting climax!

On Saturday, March 26th, GoalPoacher_ and Damie went unbeaten in four matches to top Group D, billed the ‘Group of Death’. Then in Sunday’s knockout fixtures, a fine performance from Damie was enough to see the pair beat Chelsea 5-2 on aggregate in the quarter-finals. The Norwich duo had already proved to be a dream team, and hoped to carry that momentum into the semi-finals. Damie played out a tense 0-0 draw against last year’s runner-up Olle “Ollelito” Arbin, creating a bit of suspense ahead of GoalPoacher_’s matchup. A 2-1 victory for Goalpoacher_ over Mitchell Hayward saw the Canaries overcome Leeds United to progress to the Grand Final.

Damie and Goalpoacher_ would go on to defeat Brentford duo Sam ‘SamBrwster’ Brewster and Peace ‘czohino’ Chirwa in Sunday evening’s Grand Final, thanks to a 5-1 aggregate victory. After clinching the title, Damie reflected on his journey to the gold, saying:

“Words can’t describe how I’m feeling right now. The standard of player this year went up a level, so it feels a bit surreal to call myself an ePremier League Champion. I’m so proud to lift the trophy, for the first ever time, and I’m pleased that the hard work has paid off.”

Goalpoacher_ also shared his thoughts, saying:

“This is my first ePremier League title and lifting the trophy is a moment that I’ll never forget. It has been a tough tournament, but I feel that Damien and I worked well as a team and, together, managed to progress past any opponent who stood in our way. I was always confident that we’d have a chance, but to go and win the tournament is a dream come true.”

Hashtag Tom wins the ePremier League 2019/2020

Pro FIFA player, Hashtag Tom, brought home the title for Watford as he was crowned ePL champion on Thursday.

A total of 40 players from PlayStation and Xbox battled it out in a group stage and single elimination format.

The tournament was originally planned for earlier in the year but was moved online due to the current pandemic.

With £40,000 on the line, we break down Hashtag Tom’s path to victory.

Hashtag Tom wins for Watford

The tournament began with all 40 players split into four groups of five in their respective console. Hashtag Tom was placed in group A alongside Fredo, MHaywxrd, Kingrowll and LiamCuthyy.

Tom showed from the outset that he meant business and put on an impressive display. He ended the group stages in first place with a 7-2 score total.

He then found his way to the semi-final where he would face Callumitty.

It was a devastating 5-0 win for Hashtag Tom in the semi-final and he looked in peak form.

There was more of the same in the console final as Tom faced Chelsea’s Kyle Hammond. He won 5-1 and seemed almost unstoppable as the goals continued to flow.

Over in the Xbox final, tournament favourite Tekkz faced a huge upset as he lost 5-3 to Bournemouth’s MarcMarleyyy.

The grand final was then set between Watford’s Hashtag Tom and Bournemouth’s MarcMarleyyy.

The grand final match was extremely back-and-forth as both players had their eyes set on the prize.

Tom put himself in the lead after an early strike from Roberto Firmino and seemed to be in the driver’s seat. His lead was then extended to two after Paul Pogba netted in the 38th minute.

It was then too late for MarcMarleyyy as he got one back but the full-time whistle blew for Hashtag Tom.

This was Tom’s first major trophy and he was ecstatic to say the least. The England and Watford representative took to Twitter to express his joy:

Final placings

  • 1st – Hashtag Tom (£20,000)
  • 2nd – MarcMarleyyy (£10,000)
  • 3rd/4th – Hamm-nd & Tekkz (£5,000 each)
  • 5th-8th – Callumitty, Tass, Jamboo, Shawrey
