Four FIFA fanatics will join Manchester City on tour in the United States as they bid to be crowned the champion of the FIFA 17 Cup.
Over the past four weeks, gamers from across the US have been competing for a spot in the showpiece game and we can now reveal the quartet who will join us in Houston on 19 July.
Our four finalists – two who will face-off on Xbox One and two on PlayStation 4 – proved their credentials by successfully navigating their way through both the preliminary ladder and play-off round.
They’ll now fly out to Houston for the grand final with the aim of taking home the Man City FIFA 17 Cup.
In the Xbox tournament, we’ll see Alan ‘xAlanAvi’ Avila play Luigi ‘itsDoofman’ Puello, both of whom have posted impressive results in the FUT Weekend League leaderboards this year.
With Luigi finishing third in the Americas in May and Alan second in June, we’re expecting a close match.
John ‘xbLeU’ Garcia from Moreno Valley, California and Chris ‘CHRIS_SIXTY1’ Lopez will go head to head on PlayStation.
In only his first year playing competitively John has qualified for every FUT Champions regional event on FIFA 17, while Chris, a latecomer to the game, registered an impressive 21 wins in 24 games during the preliminary ladder.
Joining the finalists in Houston is the ‘undisputed Queen of FIFA’, Fangs and our very own professional esports player, Kieran ‘Kez’ Brown, while some of the first team will also be showing us what they’ve got and getting in on the action.
You can watch the final LIVE over on the official Man City Twitch channel.
Our stream kicks off at 8.30am CDT / 2.30pm BST on Wednesday, 19 July.
