ESE Entertainment Inc. has announced that its media company, Frenzy sp. z.o.o. (Frenzy), will organise three offline events for the PKO Bank Polski Ekstraklasa Games, the official EA SPORTS FIFA tournament associated with Ekstraklasa, a professional European soccer league.
The PKO Bank Polski Ekstraklasa Games is an EA SPORTS FIFA tournament dedicated to both professional esports players associated with Ekstraklasa soccer clubs, as well as amateurs. The competition is therefore divided into two tiers: Pro and Open. The best players from both tiers will play in the grand finals and will have a chance to qualify for this season’s EA SPORTS Global Series Playoff.
Between November 30 and December 29, 2021, professional teams assembled their rosters through draft and transfers, while amateurs competed in three open tournaments for their spots in the regular season phase. The regular season, which has 17 rounds, launched on January 4, 2022. Nine episodes of the PKO Bank Polski Ekstraklasa Games Magazine produced by Frenzy highlighted the main stage of competition.
The 2022 season of the PKO Bank Polski Ekstraklasa Games will be crowned with three in-person live tournaments that will be produced in Frenzy’s state-of-the-art studio in Warsaw. The tournaments are scheduled for the weekends of March 12th – 13th and March 26th – 27th and the grand finals on April 9th and April 10th. Each offline tournament will feature 8 players, and will be broadcast on Polsat Games’ linear TV and on the internet.
“Thanks to the PKO Bank Polski Ekstraklasa Games, EA SPORTS’ FIFA has made itself at home with Frenzy and Polsat Games.
