EA announced the structure of the competitive season that awaits FIFA 23, which includes a new cup and series while keeping the traditional competitions going strong.
EA Sports Cup is probably the highlight here as it's a new competition that will feature 2v2 competitions that will put more emphasis on esports organisations, including the ones stemming from professional football clubs.
The cup will unfold through three months of fixtures, the first round of which will kick off on October 17, 2022.
This league where the likes of Manchester City, PSG, Fnatic and Complexity Gaming will duke it out, will conclude between January 16 and 21 when the champion will be crowned and it will be decided which two teams will move up to FIFAe Club World Cup 2023.
Traditional 1v1 competition will stick around as players will attempt to qualify for FIFAe World Cup 2023. This one will start immediately as FIFA 23 releases on September 27, 2022.
However, this is not just one competition - it will span over a multitude of tournaments over the course of 10 months, including:
- FUT Division Rivals, starting on September 27
- FGS 23 Midseason Major, April 7, 2023
- FGS Playoffs, June 23 to 25, 2023
- FIFAe World Cup 2023 in late summer 2023
FGS 23 Playoffs will be played exclusively on PS5, in a time when Sony is moping about an unfair advantage Xbox consoles could get through exclusivity.
