Four divisions have been drawn up across two gaming platforms; PS4 Seniors, PS4 Juniors, Xbox Seniors and Xbox Juniors with over 700 people registering for the new Series.
The matches are even streamed live on FQ’s Twitch channel where people can tune in and watch the matches in real time.
Football Queensland had decided to do everything possible to keep their participants engaged with football since the games suspension in March, and decided now was the time for Queensland to have their own E-Series
FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said the Football Queensland E-Series would provide a fun way for local football fans to engage with the sport during a challenging period.
“It is crucial our football community unites together at this time, and to have the opportunity to do that by exploring the eSports space with the launch of the Football Queensland E-Series is extremely exciting,” Cavallucci said.
“We invite all Queenslanders to join in the fun and do their region proud.”
