Esports 2018 Open Qualifiers

Seattle Sounders announce registration for 2018 Esports Open Qualifiers

The Seattle Sounders have enjoyed on-field success throughout the club's first 10 seasons in Major League Soccer and now the Rave Green are looking to translate that same success into the world of esports. 

Today, the Sounders announced the opening of registration for its 2018 Esports Open Qualifier as the teams searches for its new competitive esports representative.

The 2018 Esports Open Qualifier will be held on November 14 and 15 at 8 p.m. PT each day and is a free online tournament open to any FIFA gamers who are FUT Champions Verified and live within 75 miles of Seattle, or within the cities of Spokane or Bellingham. Players wishing to register for the Open Qualifier who are under the age of 18 will be required to provide parental consent for participation.

Players need only select one of the two days - either November 14 or November 15 - to play, as each day is a separate tournament. 

The top 16 players in the tournament will then be invited to the Sounders FC Esports Finals on December 4 and held in The NINETY. Players will face off against one another in a knockout-style tournament for a chance to become the Sounders new esports representative.
