An incredible 780 people from across the state are set to compete in the inaugural Football Queensland (FQ) E-Series competition.
Four divisions have been drawn up across two gaming platforms; PS4 Seniors, PS4 Juniors, Xbox Seniors and Xbox Juniors, while participants have been divided into SEQ and regional pools for the First Group Stage.
The tournament format will consist of two group stages (First Group Stage and Second Group Stage) and a knockout stage (Round of 32, Round of 16, Quarter Finals, Semi Finals and Grand Final).
Follow the Football Queensland Twitch channel to watch live matches, highlights and other video content throughout the tournament.
Each round has a window of three days to complete the scheduled fixture. Each fixture must be completed by the deadline; 11:59pm on Wednesday and Sunday each week. Deadline dates and times will be displayed for each fixture on SportsTG. The following round’s playing window will start immediately, the day after the last round’s deadline.
For every fixture, both competitors are required to add each other using their respective Xbox Gamertags or PSN, as listed on SportsTG. The two players must then communicate to arrange an exact match time. Players must ensure their console privacy settings are set to public, so their opponent is able to find them when searching for their Gamertag/PSN ID.
The player listed as the ‘home’ team on SportsTG is responsible for setting up the match on FIFA 20. Both players are required to check in five minutes before the scheduled match time. At the end of every match, the winning player is required to fill in a Result Submission Form and submit to Football Queensland for validation before the fixture deadline.
All participants are required to read the Football Queensland E-Series Competition Rules before commencing their first match; by entering and participating in the FQ E-Series, each participant acknowledges and agrees to be bound by and comply with these Competition Rules.
More information on the FQ E-Series competition format can also be found in the Competition Rules.
