The professional FIFA players came out in force on Wednesday night for a thrilling ePremier League club play-off.
PS4 Winner – MarcMarleyyy
The PlayStation final saw MarcMarleyyy record a 7-1 win against Footi2k.
Earlier in the competition Marc had been 7-5 down with seven minutes to play in his game against ChristianW26, but he scored two goals in the final minutes to force a golden goal scenario.
As a previous ePL runner-up in the Xbox category, MarcMarleyyy changed to PlayStation for this event with a makeshift squad and no ‘icons’ available, making his winning position all the more impressive.
On winning MarcMarleyyy said, "It’s been a long day to be honest! I wasn't playing as well as I would have liked.
"After the golden goal happened that gave me the boost I needed, I am Scottish and we always need to do things the hard way.
"It’s a massive achievement for me, I did an interview with the Premier League before the original qualifiers started and said that it is the best UK tournament.
"It was a gamble to play on a different console, but it’s nice to see it pay off. I can’t wait to represent Brighton and hopefully we can go one step further than last year."
Make that 3 years in a row 😉— Marc (@MarcMarleyyy) February 17, 2021

Xbox Winner – Bundled Luca
The Xbox final saw Bundled Luca come up against SAF 1mpactZ, last year’s Albion play-off champion.
The end of the first leg saw the professional Bundled player leading 3-1 with a final score of 5-2 after the second match.
Bundled Luca said, "I’m really happy that I can represent Brighton in the ePremier League.
"I’m just happy that I managed to win it all. In a lot of games and tournaments I narrowly missed out, so I am very happy to have won!
"It’s one of the best leagues in the world against the best players - I got the chance from my organisation to play and I’m just very happy I could win it for them."

We will support and follow them both in the next stage!
