Following on from the previous series, in which Goal's professional FIFA players faced off against players from Manchester City, New York City FC and Melbourne City, Goal VS is back and this time the opponents come from No Fuchs Given Esports .
In the first episode, Goal’s Danny Taylor faced off against Chiang Wen 'Hibidi' Jun . With two World Cyber Games medals to his name, Hibidi is known for his celebrations and attacking style of play.
Other matches in the series will include Goal’s Xbox player, Graham ‘GrayzaGoal’ McIntyre and Mohamad 'Bacha' Al-Bacha , Remi Martinn and Remi ‘Remdog’ Thomas from No Fuchs Given Esports.
Christian Fuchs said: “I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve built here at No Fuchs Given Esports, but there’s no underestimating what Goal’s players can do. No games should be easy, but they should all be entertaining.”
All Goal VS matches are played on FIFA 19’s Ultimate Team mode, meaning both teams are stacked with the best cards in the game.
The matches were played at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium, with commentary provided by professional FIFA commentators Brandon Smith and Richard Buckley who have called the action at numerous FIFA tournaments, including the FIFA eWorld Cup Final.
