Two of our players from our FIFA roster have qualified for the FIFA 22 FGS Playoffs after winning the eSuperliga. The FGS Playoff is the qualification for the FIFA eWorld Cup. 16 players from each region qualify for the playoffs through the FGS Qualifiers, which is been held throughout the season, after which they play to qualify for the FIFA eWorld Cup.
The Playoff spots were originally meant to be awarded to the winners of the upcoming eSuperliga Season 8, but due to the event being cancelled our players TeamHajj and OneWayCrazyy have been awarded the playoff seats. TeamHajj and OneWayCrazyy can now look forward to competing against the best players in the world on July 1-3 at the end of the FIFA Global Series season.
Official statement from the eSuperliga reads as follows:
”Unfortunately, we have chosen to cancel the upcoming Season 8 of the eSuperliga. We will now use the time to improve the eSuperliga by the help of feedback from the clubs and the fans. We hope to see you all again soon.
The cancellation of Season 8 means that the two seats for the EA FGS 22 Playoffs will be awarded to Season 7 winners from Randers FC.”
“Very sad news that the eSuperliga has decided to cancel the upcoming season, which we were all looking forward to. With that being said, I’m obviously delighted to receive a spot in the playoffs, which is one of the biggest events in FIFA eSport – It is a dream come true, and I’m looking forward to representing Singularity on the biggest stage in FIFA!”Lasse “OneWayCrazyy” Kristiansen, FIFA player, Team Singularity
“The news of Season 8 being cancelled came as a big shock for all of us. But at the same time this gives us two playoff seats, which is a dream come true!”Maher “TeamHajj” Hajj, FIFA player, Team Singularity
“These are very ambivalent feelings to face at the moment. I am of course incredibly happy that the boys have been awarded the two playoff spots, but that it comes at the expense of the eSuperliga, where we should have played as the defending champions, is incredibly unfortunate. With that said, I look forward to seeing the boys on the big stage.”Jacob Timothy Nielsen-Gee, FIFA manager, Team Singularity
We look forward to seeing TeamHajj and OneWayCrazyy competing amongst the world elite at the end of the season!
