FIFA Ultimate Team Championship Series
EA Sports has released details on the upcoming FIFA Ultimate Team Championship Series tournament via their official website. Europe Season One, the Paris Regional Finals, will take place on February 4.
Europe Season 1
32 of the top FIFA 17 competitors will clash for a spot in the Ultimate Team Championship Finals in Berlin.
To start, the bracket will be divided into two main tiers, one for PS4 and the other for Xbox One. From there, each tier is then broken into four groups of four players. During this group stage, a victory is worth three points, draw one point and a loss is of course worth zero. Each player competes against all three other members of their group once. The top two players with the highest Win-Draw-Loss score moves on to the knockout round.
The knockout round is a double-elimination format; it takes two losses to be eliminated from the tournament. Upon earning their first loss, the competitor is moved to the losers’ bracket. More details on advancement in case of a tie can be found here.
