The Online FIFA Tournament format will run much the same as our actual live Business Fives event formats and full rules can be found on our website here.

Business Esports online FIFA tournament is open to anyone with an Xbox or Playstation console initially on FIFA 20.

Entries are now open for colleagues of between 1 and 4 players to form a team and enter under their company name.  Individuals or pairs will be paired up to play with others in similar positions.

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.
