The competition, in its fourth edition, will see the world’s best teams compete in one-on-one and two-on-two contests on US-based company EA Sports’ FIFA 20 video game.

Italian sides Mkers, AS Roma and Team QLASH will enjoy home support against 21 other teams from around the world, including teams representing major soccer clubs: Olympique Lyonnais, Manchester City, Austria Wien, Borussia Moenchengladbach and FC Basel.

"We are proud that over 190 teams from all over the world took part in this season's qualification," Adrian Rolli, head of eFootball at FIFA, said in a statement.

“The introduction of team-based 2v2 matches showed a new level of excitement and competitiveness at last year’s event and will undoubtedly spark huge emotions at this year’s tournament as well.”
