Luke Bartolo joins SkillUp ahead of FIFA 22 season

Luke Bartolo joins SkillUp ahead of FIFA 22 season

Local organisation SkillUp have been making big moves in the local scene recently. Having just added BigStuff and xPickyy to their FIFA roster ahead of the new season. They are showing no signs of slowing down announcing that the duo will be joined by local talent Luke Bartolo!

Luke Bartolo joins SkillUp – Who is he? 

Luke is no stranger to the local FIFA scene. Having represented Sliema Wanderers in the BOV ePremier League he managed a very impressive 2nd place finish as well as taking home the Pepsi People’s Choice Award!

After a great run in the local scene he was unfortunately knocked out from EASports Fifa 21 Global Series early on in a bittersweet Maltese derby which saw him once again fall short against local rival Christian Spiteri in a nail-biting series.

We reached out to Luke to get a few words on the exciting move as well as his plans for the upcoming season.

What does joining an ambitious organization like SkillUp alongside some great international talents mean to you?

It means a great deal and I appreciate the trust they put in me.

What are your personal goals heading into the FIFA 22 season?

The goal will be to be among the top 50 players of the world and make the big event whatever that will be next year. That being said, I will train to be number one and see where that gets me.

Do you have any advice for any aspiring FIFA players in the local scene?

Train hard and make sacrifices to improve. The best starting step for a local player would be to try and qualify for MaltaBOVePL in my opinion.MaltaBOVePL is great to get a taste of what competitive FIFA is like. If you can make it to MaltaBOVePL and do well there you are on the right track.
