If you like FIFA and you like numbers then this is the news post for you, you lucky person (or persons).
The Global Series regular season events generated over 680 million minutes watched with 61 million total views. Now, I don’t have last year’s numbers to hand, but that’s apparently a 60% increase in minutes watched and a 25% increase on overall views from the previous year, which is a really good return. You can see a full breakdown here if infographics are your thing.
From here the series goes to the playoffs with the Xbox Ladder taking place in Hamburg between July 5 and 7, then the PS4 bracket in berlin from July 12 to 14. 128 players will take part, with 64 per console bracket as they try to advance to the FIFA eWorld Cup and become the eWorld Cup 2019 Champion.
