ELEAGUE brought the FIFA 19 tournament to the US for the first time and the in-game action did not disappoint
The FUT Champions Cup returned last weekend with a new look and location as experienced esport tournament organisers ELEAGUE brought the competition to Atlanta, USA for the first time ever.
Players from around the world travelled in to face off and create a wonderful three days of competition with the likes of Nicolas ‘Nicolas99fc’ Villalba, Mossad ‘MSdossary’ Aldossary and Donovan ‘F2Tekkz’ Hunt all in attendance. And it was the latter who took home the trophy once again as he continues his season of domination.
Tekkz is the first three-time FUT Champions Cup winner
There have never been more tournaments in one season and as a result, we have never seen the level of domination that Tekkz has demonstrated in FIFA 19. Not only did the young Englishman lift the trophy and take home the lion’s share of the $100,000 prize pool, but he also made history as the first player to ever win three FUT Champions Cup tournaments.
Tekkz survived the early rounds with a sensational 9-8 win over Lukas ‘Sakul’ Vonderheide and went through all the way to the final where he defeated Diogo ‘Tuga810’ Pombo to taste glory once more. The F2 player already had enough Global Series Points to qualify for the eWorld Cup later this year but told Goal that he loves nothing more than going to tournaments and proving himself as the best. With another 1,500 Global Series Points in his pocket, there’s little doubt over who the world number one is.
