Welcome to the FIFA 20 New Zealand Football National Championship, with LPL and New Zealand Football!
UPDATE 18th March 2020:
Due to the developing global impact of COVID-19, EA have made the decision to suspend all EA SPORTS FIFA 20 events until further notice.
Regretfully this means that the LPL Pro NZ Football FIFA 20 eNations Qualifier Event has been suspended. As disappointing as this news is to players, NZ Football and LPL, we fully support the decision to ensure the safety of players, staff and media, as well as the initiative to slow the spread of COVID-19 through travel and events.
EA has assured us that they will continue to monitor the situation, receiving updates and guidance from health officials around the world to determine the next steps for moving forward with live events and online broadcasts. LPL would like to thank our players, audience and community for their understanding. Be safe and well, and please remember to wash your hands!
In association with New Zealand Football, we invite Kiwi players to show us their FIFA 20 skills on PS4 & Xbox! The best EA Sports FIFA 20 gamers in the country will be given the opportunity to represent New Zealand when the FIFA eNations Cup Qualifiers is held in April 2020.
The top four players from the open qualifiers (two on Xbox One and two on PlayStation 4) will then qualify for the national championship, to be held at LPL Studios inside Auckland’s iconic Sky Tower on 26 March.
Two national winners, one on each console, will then be invited to the FIFA eNations Cup Qualifiers to represent New Zealand in April 2020.
