The second edition of the EA SPORTS FIFA Online 4 esports tournament is managed by ONE Esports across China, Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam
The inter-Asian esports tournament for EA SPORTS™ FIFA Online 4 will be hosted by Electronic Arts (“EA”) and ONE Esports. The second edition of the season, EACC Summer 2022, will run from 15 August to 21 August. The tournament will be broadcast across China, Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam, and will feature 12 teams competing over a week of intense competition for a total US$100,000 prize pool.
The EACC first began in 2014 as the EA SPORTS™ FIFA Online 3 Spearhead Invitational, being the first-ever international EA SPORTS™ FIFA Online esports competition. It later evolved into the Asian Cup in 2015, finally becoming the EA Champions Cup in 2016. Since then, it has brought together the best professional FIFA Online 4 teams twice a year, in a battle to become the champions of Asia.
Three teams from each participating country – China, Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam – each consisting of three to four players, will battle it out in a two-sided double-elimination styled bracket. During this double-elimination bracket, each matchup will be played in a Best-of-5 format, meaning that teams must win at least three games out of the maximum five games played to advance.
Both teams in the matchup will nominate a different individual athlete for each of the first three games. For the optionally required game four and five, the athletes from games one, two, and three can be re-nominated. As a result, a single athlete can only compete in a maximum of two games during a single matchup between two EA SPORTS™ FIFA Online 4 teams, putting a greater focus on the performance and tactics of the entire team.
The full list of teams from each participating country is as follows:
|China||1st – Wolves Esports |
2nd – Nova Esports
3rd – Manchester City Esports Team
|Korea||1st – Kwangdong Freecs |
2nd – DAEJEON HANACITIZEN FC
3rd – CrazyWin
|Thailand||1st – GRATZ |
2nd – MiTR Coffee
3rd – NRSports
|Vietnam||1st – ProGamer |
2nd – DIH Esports
3rd – Tony Tonyy
|Stage||Date||Start time (GMT +8)|
|Semi Finals and Grand Finals||21 August||16:00|
All participating esports teams shall ensure that their athletes comply, for the whole duration of the EACC, with the game rules set out here.
