The very first edition of the FIFAe Club World Cup was held in 2017 and ever since this event has welcomed the best FIFAe esports teams to compete against each other once a year.
The FIFAe Club World Cup is the culmination of eFootball.
In 2021, the FIFAe Club World Cup had a grand prize pool of $350,000.
FIFAe Club World Cup Schedule and Format
42 teams from six different zones featured in the 2021 FIFAe Club World Cup edition, although over 480 teams had entered the online competition.
- 24 Feb: Group stage zone 4 and 5
- 25 Feb: Group stage zone 1, 2, 4 and 6
- 26 Feb: Group stage zone 3 & knockout stage zone 4 and 5
- 27 Feb: Finals zone 1, 3 and 5
- 28 Feb: Finals zone 2, 4 and 6
Due to the global pandemic, travel restrictions, and for the safety of their players and all those involved, the 2021 FIFAe Club World Cup edition featured six individual zone finals with one winner per zone.
As always, esports betting fans will have the first opportunity to bet on FIFA from the group stage. The scoring system is identical to FIFA rules, with winners getting three points while a draw awards one point to each team. Four teams advance to the knockout stage where they play in a single-elimination bracket consisting of the best of two series.
Games are played on PS4 and Xbox and extra time and penalties are only available in the third, decisive match.
These are some of the most balanced games in the tournament, which results in the most competitive FIFA betting odds.
