The competition


The eLigue 1 Open is a 100% online virtual football tournament organized by the Professional Football League (LFP) for each club in Ligue 1 Uber Eats. This competition is open to amateurs who wish to represent their favorite club.

The competition takes place over several weeks and is to be played in "Kickoff - Mode 90" mode of FIFA 21, on Xbox One and Playstation 4.


The stages


The competition takes place in two stages:


Stage One: Qualifying (March 2-April 12)

One Xbox One tournament and one PS4 tournament will be organized for each of the 20 Ligue 1 Uber Eats clubs. The two winners (PS4 and Xbox One) from each club will be qualified for the grand final: the playoffs.


Stage Two: The playoffs (April 12-14)

The playoffs are organized at national level. They will bring together the 40 winners (PS4 and Xbox One) of each of the 20 Ligue 1 Uber Eats clubs. The winners of each club qualified for the playoffs will be divided into eight pools of two or three players. Following the group stage matches, the top two from each group will be qualified for the finals. The two national winners (Xbox One and PS4) then qualify for the qualifying tournament for the 2020/21 Ligue 1 Draft.
