The EA Sports title is one of the best-selling video game franchises of all time and has a thriving online scene including the eWorld Cup

Football is the most popular sport in the world for bettors and it is unlikely that will change in the near future.

However, the advent of esports entering the mainstream provides punters with new opportunities, with tournaments being played all over the world at all hours thanks to online gameplay.

Can you bet on FIFA 20?

Betting on FIFA 20 is available on tournaments officially organised by EA Sports, publisher of the video game.

More teams

Competitions include EA FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) Cups, FIFA eClub World Cup, FIFA eNations Cup and FIFA 20 Global Series.

The pinnacle of the season is the FIFA eWorld Cup, which sees the best professional players from a range of countries take part in a three-day event at the Grand Finals.

The Grand Finals have taken place in some of the biggest cities in the world with London, New York, Munich and Madrid among those to have hosted it in recent years, and the continuous stream of games offers plenty of betting options.

One of the only non-EA sanctioned events that offered betting markets was the FIFA Ultimate QuaranTeam event, organised by League Two side Leyton Orient in the absence of football due to the coronavirus outbreak.

A total of 128 teams entered the competition with the teams being controlled by either a FIFA professional or a player at the club.
