Posted on: Oct 12, 2018 By smartlaunch in Uncategorized,

The Danish Superliga has teamed up with eSports firm DreamHack and the media company Discovery Networks Danmark to launch an eSuperliga. Every football club from the Danish Superliga will compete in the eSuperliga – a new FIFA 19 competition.

The new eSport league will kick off for the first time on November 5 and, over the following seven weeks, teams will compete to win the inaugural eSuperliga playing EA Sports FIFA 19.

The league will consist of 16 clubs – 13 from the Superliga and three from the second tier 1 Division. A total of 120 games fixtures will be played over 15 gaming days.

Every team will consist of at least two players and a coach. One of the players must have a professional eSport contract with the club, and the players must be at least 16 years old when the tournament starts. The eSuperliga is an Official League Qualifier for EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Global Series and the FIFA eWorld Cup. Matches from the Danish league will be streamed on Discovery Networks Denmark’s new streaming platform Dplay, with some of the bigger games being aired live on TV channel Canal 9.

This news follows a similar competition in the United Kingdom, the ePremier League. Announced on October 4th, each of the 20 current Premier League clubs has committed to take part in a FIFA 19 tournament starting January 2019. It too is part of the Global Series.
