Tournament Format and Prize
Participants in the eLibertadores 2024 will compete using the in-Game Ultimate Team mode. The first qualifying phase will utilize the Online Friendlies mode within Ultimate Team, while the second phase and the finals will shift to the 1v1 competitive mode.
After two rounds of qualifiers, the finalists will compete in March 2024 for a share of the $100,000 prize pool. Additionally, two players will secure spots in the inaugural EA SPORTS FC Pro World Championship, scheduled for June 2024.
The grand final will be held in person and broadcast live on Twitch and YouTube, where fans can watch their favourites battle it out on the biggest South American esports stage. This event will also offer fans the opportunity to wager on their favourite FC pro players. Platforms like siticasinononaams.com provide expert reviews for eSports betting sites, allowing fans to engage in various bets, including moneyline bets, over/under (totals) bets, props, and Parlay bets, on events that occur at all stages of the EA Sports FC 24 Pro tournament.
Brazil as the Host Country
The tournament will take place in Brazil, a nation renowned for producing the last three eLibertadores champions. The host city, yet to be determined, will likely be either Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo.
Brazil’s Dominance in Past Tournaments
Brazilian players have been notably successful in past eLibertadores tournaments, with Pedro Resende winning in 2021, Paulo Henrique “PHzin” in 2022, and Gabriel “Baxada” most recently.
EA Sports, having parted ways with the FIFA brand, continues the legacy with EA Sports FC. Despite renewed licensing rights for club crests, kits, and CONMEBOL clubs in June, Brazilian clubs in the game will still have generic rosters due to licensing complications with the Brazilian Football Confederation.
Further updates regarding the final host city for this exciting showcase of South American virtual football talent will be forthcoming.
