French Broadcaster Canal has announced that it will show the European Finals of the FUT Championship Series on Canal Esport Club before broadcasting a tournament highlights show on Canal + Sport the day after.
The Canal Esports Club will broadcast the European Finals on Saturday 4th February on their Twitch channel – before showing a highlight show on TV channel Canal + Sport on 5 February.
The tournament will see 32 of the best players gathering in Paris to compete for their share of the $100,000 (£80,000) prize pool and the arguably bigger prize, progression onwards in the series. As the video above shows, the series has a total of $1.3m(£1m) to be awarded in prize money.
Esports Insider says: 11.55pm on a Sunday night is a bit of an undesirable time for a highlight show – but hey, it’s exposure right? The tournament itself should be a great watch with some of the biggest names in FIFA set to compete.
