Marcus Gomes qualifies for FIFA Ultimate Team Champions Cup

Melbourne City FC’s e-Sports player Marcus Gomes has qualified for the FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) Champions Cup, in turn, qualifying for the FIFA eWorld Cup.

The tournament is one of several qualification routs in the FIFA eWorld Cup, EA SPORTS and FIFA's competition on this year’s edition of the game.

Gomes made his way into the tournament with 153 wins out of 160 over four weekends, seeing him finish 36th in the world on XBOX and 2nd in the Rest of World region, finishing first in Australia.

What’s even more impressive for Marcus is that he’s made the transition from PS4 to XBOX since 2017’s competition where he finished first in the Rest of World region.

The live event - which takes place in January – will feature the top 128 players split evenly between XBOX and PS4 consoles.

From there, only the top eight competitors from each platform will qualify for the EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Global Series Playoffs next June.

We would like to congratulate Marcus on his achievement!
