Overview of recent FIFA 19 Global Series events
Rarely has there been such a busy month for the FIFA 19 Global Series. May saw 'F2Tekkz' raise yet another trophy aloft, 'NYC_Chris' won the inaugural eChampions League and leagues around the world crowned their eFootball champions for the season. Here is a look back at some of the highlights from the month of May:
The eight finalists all had their eyes on lifting the eChampions League trophy for the first time. 'DrNightWatch', 'NYC_Chris', 'Zezinho' and 'Marcuzo' made it through the first round and then did battle in an exciting pair of semi-finals. In the end, it was 'DrNightWatch' from Bulgaria who faced USA’s 'NYC_Chris' in the final, with the man from New York City FC coming out on top and receiving the inaugural eChampions League crown.
PGL FIFA 19 Cup
'F2Tekkz' managed his seventh tournament win of the season, this time at the PGL FIFA 19 Cup to further increase his lead at the top of the FIFA 19 Global Series Rankings. There will be no hotter favourite than him in the play-offs and at the FIFA eWorld Cup 2019.
