What will the 2021 season of the BOV ePremier League consist of?

As stated in their official announcement, the 2020/21 BOV ePremier League will allow any Maltese resident who is aged 16 and over (and with a valid EA account) to compete in the three online qualifiers. The first qualifier is set to kick off on the 16th of December, and each single-elimination tournament will have a maximum of 128 players.

The top 8 placers from each of these three online qualifiers will advance to the offline qualifiers where they will be joined by the eight players who finished 6th to 13th in the 2019-20 BOV ePremier League standings. These players are: Mizu, IsaacKyleGrima, Turbuleense, lukebartolo, lawfu, Ryan08100, Aless10, and Haller10.

The main event is set to kick off in March of 2021, where we’ll be seeing the best 16 players that Malta has to offer battle it out in a four-group GSL format. With regards to the Knock-out stage, it has been stated that it will be played sometime in May with 16 competitors from the previous stage seeded according to their positions in the groups with the top player in a group facing the bottom-placed player from another group. It is important to bear in mind that the knock-out phase will be a single-elimination format with matches played over two legs.

This is an exciting time for Maltese esports, especially all those that have a passion for FIFA and Football competition. Will ChristianSpiteri come out on top once more? Or will we be seeing a new local champion emerge?
