The FIFA eWorld Cup is the conclusion of the FIFA 18 Global Series tournament, an expansion of the long-running annual esports competitions in EA's FIFA franchise. These playoffs will culminate in the Federation Internationale de Football Association eWorld Cup in August. "We engage millions of soccer fans daily through Federation Internationale de Football Association and attract many more who view our competitions around the world".

Further details on the eMLS league's structure and player signings will be revealed in the coming weeks, but at least one MLS club has already gotten started. The organizers of eMLS are leaving that process up to the individual clubs; each one will figure out its own method of selecting a Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 pro "from its region".

This will all feed into the 2018 Federation Internationale de Football Association eWorld Cup which will take place in August and feature the best players from all around the world.

"This step forward into competitive gaming is a key component in our partnership with EA Sports to promote deeper engagement and connections between MLS supporters and millions of Federation Internationale de Football Association players around the world", said MLS Business Ventures President and Managing Director, Gary Stevenson.
