The Premier League has jumped on the virtual bandwagon, staging a FIFA competition that will raise money for the National Health Service. The competition is called the ePremier League Invitational Tournament. It’s a single-elimination tournament that begins today and runs through Saturday April 25th.
Each of the league’s 20 teams will have a representative playing the games for them. For Liverpool, Trent Alexander-Arnold will be in charge of the controller as he looks bring glory to the Reds from the comfort of his own home.
The games will be airing on several streaming platforms over the course of the week, including nbcsports.com, the Premier League’s site and social channels, and Sky Sports’ Twitch and YouTube pages. Both NBCSN and Sky Sports Main Event will be airing the semi-finals and final game live on Saturday.
Good news for anyone desperate for some kind of football content — or just something to do while you’re sitting at home.
