With 16 spots at the EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Global Series Playoffs on offer – where tickets for the main event - the FIFA eWorld Cup Grand Final itself will be up for grabs – competition was fierce, but it was 16-year-old Briton DhTekKz, taking part in his first major competitive event, who triumphed overall.
“Honestly, I don’t know what to say,” he responded after being named champion in Barcelona. “I don’t know where to put [the trophy]!”
He is now assured of a place at the Global Series Playoffs, where he will be flanked by some of the game's biggest names as eight the quarter-finalists from both consoles all sealed their spots – including the finalists from 2017’s Grand Final, deto_official and Gorilla Unilad.
