The FQ E-Series returns for a second season in 2021 with a new format and on the latest version of the FIFA video game series – FIFA 21.
Kicking off in January, the tournament runs across two platforms – Xbox One and PS4 – and comprises four divisons: PS4 Seniors, PS4 Juniors, Xbox Seniors and Xbox Juniors.
The tournament will operate in a Knockout format. Each round is to consist of one leg only, with the winner progressing to the next round. If scores are level at full time, players will replay the match until a winner is decided at the completion of the match.
Each round’s 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 the day after the previous round’s deadline once Football Queensland publishes the results of the previous round.
For every fixture, both competitors are required to add each other and make contact 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 21. 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 FQ 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 and Football Australia’s Code of Conduct.
More information on the FQ E-Series competition format can also be found in the Competition Rules.
