Set to broadcast live in over 70 countries around the world, the FIFA 17 UTC final in Berlin, Germany will be the most watched event in the game’s history.
Thirty-two competitors are pitching to become the world’s best FIFA player – and with US$400,000 in cash up for grabs, they could be one of the richest, too. Stars on show include Benedikt “SaLz0r” Saltzer, who in 2015 became the first esports pro to sign with a major football club, VfL Wolfsburg.
The Day 1 Finals kick off on May 19 at 1200 CET; the Day 2 Finals on May 20 at 1100 CET; and the Grand Final on May 20 at CET 1700. Fans in the Nordic region can follow the action on MTG’s video streaming services and TV channels:
