PSG’s August ‘Agge’ Rosenmeier will have been in a jubilant mood on Sunday evening after winning the inaugural Legia Esports Cup.
The tournament, which featured the majority of Europe’s football clubs that have a FIFA pro on their books, took place on Saturday and Sunday. It makes for a successful week for PSG Esports as a whole, after their other FIFA player, Lucas ‘Daxe’ Cuillerier , won the ESWC 2016 final at Paris Games Week the previous weekend.
Agge beat off Schalke 04’s Tim ‘Latka’ Schwartmann in a tense final via golden goal after a 4-4 aggregate draw. West Ham’s Sean ‘Dragonn’ Allen meanwhile finished in third place beating AS Monaco’s Nathan ‘Sneaky’ Nayagom.
Post tournament, Rosenmeier tweeted the following:
Back in Denmark. Looking back at the tournament I am really happy in general about my gameplay and my “new refreshed gamestyle” ! #AR19

The Legia Esports Cup, which was organised in association with Qwatti Esports agency, also saw the announcement of Legia Warsaw’s own FIFA player, Michal ‘Sroka’ Srokosz who then proceeded to participate in the tournament. Srokosz picked up some good results against Man City’s Kieran ‘Kez’ Brown and Ajax’s Koen Weijland but lost to eventual finalists Latka and Agge and went down 2-1 to Wolfsburg’s SaLz0r.
The tournament was seemingly a smash hit with both players and clubs with many taking to social media to praise the Polish club for putting it on in the manner that they did.

Esports Insider says: The tournament appears to have been a great success for Legia and the FIFA scene. PSG are seemingly the club to beat right now…but we want to see some more clubs hosting tournaments like this. Who’s up next?
