The ePremier league makes a return for its third season with registration opening in the beginning of December.
The EA SPORTS FIFA 21 tournament offers UK-based players the chance to represent their favourite Premier League club.
Registration for the ePremier League opens at 17:00 GMT on Thursday 3 December and can be completed by visiting e.premierleague.com. All participants must be aged 16 or over and play on either Xbox One or PlayStation 4.
Matches will then take place between all 20 clubs for four months. Online qualification will lead to club playoffs which will come to a climax at the ePL Finals in March/April 2021.
This season’s finals will again be broadcast live on Sky Sports, Premier League channels and the EA SPORTS FIFA Twitch channel.
The prize pot this year remains unchanged with a £40,000 overall prize being shared out between the top four.
Watford’s “Hashtag Tom” Leese won last year’s ePremier League title. He defeated Bournemouth’s Marc “MarcMarleyyy” Marley in the grand final and took home £20,000.
Last year’s champion said: “I would recommend the competition to FIFA players as ePL is a massive tournament with a lot of people watching.
“It also gives you the unique chance to try and represent your favourite Premier League team. And if you’re looking to break into professional FIFA then this is the perfect opportunity for UK gamers to showcase their talent.”
As well as taking home the trophy and a cash prize, the top ranking players will be offered seats at the EA SPORTS FIFA 21 Global Series European Playoffs.

The Global Series is now underway with the main tournaments kicking off this month. Big changes have been made to the global series format this year with regional play from home being a main focus.
It will be interesting to see how it all plays out on the road to the FIFA eWorld Cup next year.
