The Premier League and EA today announced the return of the ePremier League for the 2022/23 season.
Registration for this year’s tournament is open now to UK residents aged 16 and over. Players of all abilities will compete for a place in the Club Playoffs by participating in a series of online open qualification tournaments, played using crossplay, throughout November.
This season’s Grand Final will take place on 25 and 26 March 2023 at Here East in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, where the two best players from all 20 Premier League clubs will compete to find out which club will be named ePremier League Champions.

Players will be competing for a prize pool of £100,000, with the four competitors from the top two clubs earning spots in the Ea Sports FIFA 23 Global Series Playoffs and Play-Ins.
After registering for the ePremier League, players compete in a series of online qualification tournaments, with only the best advancing to the Club Playoffs.
Subsequently, each of the 20 Premier League clubs will narrow down the competitors and take forward two players, one per console, to represent them at the Grand Final between 25 and 26 March 2023.

FIFA 23 attracted over 10.3 million players in its first week of availability, the company said. In comparison, a similar press release announcing last year’s “record-breaking FIFA 22 launch” said 9.1 million players had joined the game in its first 10 days.
VGC’s FIFA 23 review concluded: “EA improves on its predecessor for the umpteenth time, once again delivering the best football game around. The new power shots, the revamped set piece system and women’s club teams are welcome, but anyone expecting big changes will want to hope EA Sports FC 24 delivers.”
