Congratulations to Autoclenz Business Development Manager, Peter Rhodes, who recently competed in the new ePremier League FIFA tournament.
Peter, an avid Burnley fan, began the journey with online qualifications in January 2019, which was open to players of EA SPORTS FIFA 19 throughout the UK. Registered players then competed against each other to find the 16 best players in the UK. Peter advanced through this stage and reached the club playoffs held at Turf Moor, with all 20 Premier League clubs hosting a live playoff round, giving one competitor from each club the right to advance to the ePremier League Final.
‘It’s been fantastic to actually qualify; I didn’t think I would so to actually get to Burnley and to have an opportunity to represent Burnley Football Club is absolutely fantastic. It’s the first time I have ever done anything like this but I really enjoyed it’
Peter just missed out on the chance to represent Burnley at the Premier eSports finals in London after losing in the club finals.
Following the tournament Peter was featured on the Premier League's social media channel which went viral, prompting news channels from around the globe to contact him for an interview. Click here to watch one of Peter's Interview (Skip to 18:25 to see the Interview).
Well done Peter.
