What is UEFA eEURO 2020?
UEFA eEURO 2020 is a national team efootball competition featuring all 55 UEFA National Associations. The format of the tournament is similar to UEFA EURO 2020, involving a qualification phase and a final tournament.
The tournament is the first national team efootball competition of this size worldwide. Gamers will compete exclusively in Konami's eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2020 (PES 20) on Playstation 4.
Who will compete for each country? Could it be me?
The focus of the tournament is on the team element, the essence of football. Therefore, each participating National Association competes with a national e-football team of between two and four gamers to represent their country.
Between November 2019 and January 2020, National Associations nominated their national team through a tournament, either online or physical, unless a national efootball team already exists. The team then competes in the online qualifying phase.
How does the online qualifying phase work?
The draw took place in January. This divided the competing countries into ten groups for the qualifying phase, which took place between 9 and 30 March.
Each country played two matches (one versus one) against the other countries in the same group; points from both matches were added to the group table.
The ten group winners qualified directly for the final tournament. The ten runners-up will play in a play-off tournament to determine the other six finalists.
What happens once you reach the finals?
There was a live event scheduled in London in July to determine the UEFA eEURO 2020 champions but this will now take place virtually.
The 16 countries will be drawn into four groups of four, with the top two from each group advancing to the quarter-finals. The group matches will be two-versus-two competition, best of one.
Matches in the knockout stage will be a mixture of one-versus-one and two-versus-two competition, best of three, except for the final, which will be best of five.
What prize do the winners receive?
A total of €100,000 in cash prizes will be split between the quarter-finalists, including €40,000 for the winners.
