eSports: CocoVBastos, Aero come up short in Fifa eClub World Cup qualifiers
FIFA ECLUB WORLD CUP
Online qualifiers for the FIFA eClub World Cup took place between January 7-11, with OL's CocoVBastos and Aero facing 11 opponents throughout the competition.
The FIFA eClub World Cup is a special competition compared to other tournaments because it takes place in a two-vs.-two format:
Each team registers two players - one for Playstation 4, another for Xbox One - to participate. PS4 players face off, as do Xbox players. Both scores are combined to obtain a final score.
A total of 149 teams (298 professional players) were registered for the 2019 FIFA eClub World Cup qualifiers. Competition was extremely tough since only 15 teams could qualify and join defending champions Brondby IF (Denmark) for the finals in early February (15 pools were drawn, and only one team each group could qualify).
