Interest in FIFA competitions has increased in recent times, we only have to see the creation of the VFO in Spain which is a virtual football organisation in which many football clubs participate. The esports game FIFA is an excellent choice because it is known by those less accustomed to eSports competitions since it is the videogame title known by the majority of the general public and fits in with Roma and betting well.
Three players are chosen for this new project that will be managed by Fnatic, which will also offer all training facilities to esports players. The three esports players are:
Aman ‘Aman’ Seddiqi: 22 years and considered one of the best players in North America.
Sam ‘Poacher’ Carmody: English, 17 years old, and FIFA top gamer at the eSports World Convention.
