The 2022 E-League is back, and this year will be running a little differently with a local champion able to represent the club.
In the 2022 edition of the E-League the competition will be ran slightly differently with a number of changes from last season. To start, the competition will be a PlayStation exclusive as clubs search for two champions to represent them in the national FIFA 22 competition as a decision was made to align with International FIFA tournaments.
In another exciting change, the Central Coast Mariners are proud to announce that they will be choosing one champion and searching for their second.
In a first for the Central Coast, a local competition will be held, allowing a local player to possibly be the next E-League star.
This competition will be held at Westfield Tuggerah on Sunday the 3rd of April and will feature a large number of matches across the day, culminating in the final, with every match streamed live online.
Centre Court at Westfield Tuggerah will be the venue for the whole day’s entertainment where players will come across the Coast to play for their spot in the E-League.
The competition will be structured around a Group Stage with 32 participants before they are whittled down into a Round of 16, then Quarter Finals, Semi Finals and the final. In the Semi Final and Final, competitors will then load up their Ultimate Team allowing them to mimic the style and structure of the E-League Finals.
This is set to be an exciting day at Westfield Tuggerah where the best FIFA 22 players battle out for the remaining spot to represent the Central Coast Mariners in the 2022 E-League.
Mariners E-League Head Coach Jordan Purcell is excited about the new method of finding a champion.
“We are looking at taking the E-League on the coast to bigger and better places than we have previously. Through this competition, we have big plans for the space over the next couple of E-League Seasons and are excited to see how this sport can grow on the Central Coast.”
The Central Coast Mariners would also like to thank Westfield Tuggerah, JC Entertainment and Events and Chair King for their support of this event and look forward to seeing as many people at Westfield Tuggerah supporting the best e-sport stars the Coast has to offer.
An announcement will be made in the coming days of the name of the Mariners first pro in the quest for E-League glory.
