FIFA 22 is out and hopefully by now you’ve run out on the pitch. I’m spending the next week deep diving into the game and cannot wait! With the new title in the series launched, Electronic Arts and FIFA have released their EA Sports FIFA 22 esports program. There are a stack of great opportunities for players who want to compete, including the FIFAe Club Series 2022, the FIFAe Nations Series 2022 and the EA Sports FIFA 22 Global Series on the road to the FIFAe World Cup 2022.

The next event will be the FIFA 22 Challenge on 21 October, with top ambassadors representing Team adidas and Team EA Sports.
South African players did extremely well during FIFA 21 in the various global competitions and I believe we’ll see similar shows of brilliance as this season commences. I’m so hyped for where this is going and how the competitive FIFA 22 season will roll out.
