The qualifiers are comprised of two-day single elimination tournaments and the top 32 players from each club will claim a place in the Online Qualifier Playoff in January.

In the Online Qualifier Playoff, the best eight players from each console will advance to the Club Playoffs.

Club Playoffs Feb-Mar 2022

The eight players who advanced from the Online Qualifier Playoff will now face each other to become their Club's sole representative for that console in the Grand Finals in March.

The precise dates of the Club Playoffs will be confirmed by each Club. 

Grand Finals 26-27 Mar 2022

There will be a change to the Grand Finals format this season.

Players will work collaboratively as a team for the first time by taking part in a series of 1v1 matches against pairings from other clubs, with one player competing per console.

But they will also be competing to lift the ePL Trophy and take home a share of the £100,000 prize pool.

Also up for grabs are three seats for top-ranking players at the EA SPORTS FIFA 22 Global Series Playoffs. (More information on the EA SPORTS FIFA 22 Global Series here.)

Subject to COVID-19 restrictions in place at the time, this year’s competition will feature the return of a live ePremier League Grand Finals in a venue to be revealed.

All players will be hoping to emulate Manchester City’s Shaun "Shellzz" Springette, who lifted the 2020/21 ePremier League Trophy, triumphing in a penalty shootout victory over Leeds United representative Olle "Ollelito" Arbin in the Grand Final.  

“Words can’t describe how it felt winning last season’s ePremier League title," said Shellzz, a professional FIFA player following his success last year.
