A few weeks ago, we covered the EA Sports FIFA 21 Global series, a tournament that allowed players from all over to compete to win the grand prize. We gave an in-depth description of the rules and the schedule of that tournament. Earlier this month, EA Sports and CONMEBOL have announced the return of the CONMEBOL eLibertadores after the competition was suspended in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. Let us see what this competition is about.
The coming CONMEBOL eLibertadores will be the first edition of this tournament. As we said in the introduction of this article, there had been a suspension of the event due to COVID-19. This new version of eLibertadores will be an expansion of the EA Sports FIFA 21 Global Series. It will give a unique opportunity, to FIFA 21 and football fans from South America, to compete at the highest level of FIFA Football esports setting.
CONMEBOL eLibertadores will mirror real-life CONMEBOL Libertadores and take advantage of that league’s success and reputation, to gather the best players possible. The participants will be able to represent their favorite teams and players in a first-rate tournament. With luck, they can reach the top of the eleague and become champions themselves. The competition promises to be fierce when taking South American people’s passion for football into account.
At the end of the tournament, the best players of the tournament will share a prize pool of $100,000. The three best players on each platform will be qualified for the South American Playoff. Players can register for the tournament until December 21, they also must become Champions Verified before that date. There are two ways to enter the tournament via online phases I or II.
