FUT Champions Cup March Singapore will be the 5th FUT Champions Cup event of the FIFA 19 Global Series season and the fourth of five events to be hosted by PGL. The Singapore event represents one of the last chances for the pro players to earn points in the FIFA 19 Global Series with the FIFA eWorld Cup 2019 getting closer.

Esports Insider says: It’s great to see more FIFA events popping up, even more so with PGL supporting them as we all know them for their great production quality. Our only ask would be for FIFA to cut down the long-winded names, it’s a little much to say ‘FUT Champions Cup March Singapore’ without needing a breath halfway through. Regardless, we looking forward to seeing the PGL and eGG partnership develop!
