ePremier League winners 21-22 - Norwich

Norwich City’’s Damien ‘Damie’ Augustyniak & Jack ‘GoalPoacher_’ Wignall were the 2021/22 ePremier League Champions, triumphing over Brentford in a convincing 5-1 aggregate win.

Jack ‘GoalPoacher_’ Wignall said: “It was a dream come true winning the 2021/22 ePremier League title, alongside Damien. We spent hours training across the course of the season, so it meant a lot that the hard work paid off– and it’s a memory that won’t leave me. Defending the title will be a huge challenge, but one that I’m looking forward to!”

Donovan “Tekkz” Hunt, who was crowned the inaugural ePremier League Champion in 2019, added: “This is one of my favourite competitions in the FGS calendar as it gives me the chance to represent my club, Liverpool, on the global stage. Last year’s tournament was the most competitive yet, so I know it will be a difficult task to regain the title. I can’t wait to get going.”

Sam Turkbas, FIFA Competitive Gaming Commissioner, said: “We are delighted to team up with the Premier League for a fifth year of incredible ePremier League competition.

“Our ongoing EA SPORTS objective is to use the power of esports to connect football fans to the players, clubs and the game they love. This tournament is unique in that competitors, regardless of ability, have the chance to fulfil their dreams by representing their club on the biggest stage.

“There have been plenty of surprising results in the tournament’s history and I’m confident we are set for another season of incredible competition, skill and, of course, the high drama that only football can provide!”
