Inter eSports will take part in the FIFA eClub World Cup this week, one of the highlights in the eSports scene. Therefore, we're proud to announce we will have two teams in the competition.
In Europe, we will have an impressive line-up with veteran Dutch player Levy Frederique and the 17-year-old Italian/Brazilian talent Manoel Neto. Levy has an impressive track record: he participated in the FIFA 19 Global Series Play-Offs in Germany and has a lot of experience in the Dutch eDivisie competition. Levy joined Inter eSports in November and is now ready to represent our colours.
Italian talent Manoel has also been playing for Inter eSports since November, starting very well in the FIFA 21 Global Series. He's now ready to show what he is made of in the upcoming FIFA eClub World Cup.
In addition to the competition in Europe, Inter eSports will also participate in the South American competition. The team is composed of the Brazilian player Pedro Resende and his countryman Lucas Tabata, who is on loan from our eSports partner Bundled and finished in the Top 4 at the first official FIFA Global Series Qualifier in South America and Top 16 at the second official Qualifier last weekend. Pedro was the runner-up in the 2020 FIFA eClub World Cup and is therefore considered a veteran in the world of eSports. Although he is proud of what he achieved last year, he wants to do better.
Pedro had this to say: "Despite losing in the final, the campaign last year was great. We defeated great teams like Fnaticit, it really was an exciting semi-final. This is why I'll work hard to qualify and compete for the title with Inter eSports. Our goal is to finish the biggest FIFA eSports tournament as champions."
Lucas has also been playing the FIFA series for a while and wants to make his new team proud.
