Business Esports – Free Online corporate FIFA Tournament
Business Esports online FIFA tournament is launching to allow our community to stay connected. This tournament will be free to participate in and individual or team entries are now open to any of our clients, admirers or anyone in the wider business community.
Business Esports will initially host an online FIFA tournament open to anyone with Xbox or Playstation consoles initially on FIFA 20.
Our tournaments will offer a retreat from the stresses of external pressures we are all feeling in these uncertain times. As social distancing measures are enforced companies are considering the impact this will have on the mental wellbeing of their employees. We feel it’s important for businesses to continue to encourage employees to be mentally stimulated. Whilst working in isolation teamwork will be crucial and the way in which we communicate with our teams is evolving and now is a time for solidarity.
With charity a huge driver behind our company we will be encouraging entrants to make a small but optional donation to their local NHS Foundation Trusts or the charity of their choosing with the winners of the tournament receiving a donation to their chosen charity and bragging rights of course.

Business Esports Round Robin FIFA tournament format
Teams of 4 play in an initial round-robin group stage to gauge skill levels before being split into tiered ‘Champions League’ or ‘Europa League’ groups. The tournament then progresses into 2 separate knock out phases with winners of which will progress on to the Semi Final and latterly to the Final.
All team members must have access to the same brand of console either an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 and have a copy of FIFA 20 installed with an Xbox Gold or PSN Plus account. Companies may submit 2 teams i.e. an Xbox team of 4 and a Playstation team of 4.
A ‘match’ will see company teams of 4 players playing against each other.
A ‘fixture’ is one 12 minute FIFA game.
Each company will play 3 matches in their group of 4 playing each opposing team once.
Each match will consist of 16 fixtures with each participant playing one fixture against each of the opposing 4 participants.
This equates to 4 fixtures per participant per evening in each match.
The outcome of a single match is determined by the aggregate score of the 16 individual fixtures
Games will be played during the evenings to minimise disruption to normal working hours and kick off times will be staggered to suit daily schedules.
The exact FIFA Tournament format will be finalised and communicated with all entracts when the format has been finalised and the fixtures have been decided on. Every player is responsible for keeping up to date with their own fixtures.
