Hrvatski Telekom, a long-standing sponsor of Croatian football and a leading telecommunications services provider, is launching a project called Hrvatski Telekom e-league.
It is an e-sport competition in which all football fans can participate. They will compete in the virtual arena by playing on behalf of their favorite Croatian clubs. In addition to FIFA 21, played on the PlayStation 4 console, all applicants will play on behalf of one of the clubs participating in the project - Dinamo, Hajduk, Osijek, and Rijeka - in Ultimate Team mode within FIFA 21.
"I am pleased that after many years of support for Croatian football, we are now bringing the competition to the virtual world and that we have enabled everyone who wants to try out the role of a player of their favorite club. Hrvatski Telekom e-League is the first step of Hrvatski Telekom in the e-sport and gaming segment. We will continue to develop our offer in this area and improve the user gaming experience", said Richard Brešković, Director of Residential Marketing of Hrvatski Telekom.
Registrations for the Hrvatski Telekom e-League start on October 19 and last until October 22. A maximum of 1,024 participants will take part in the competition. Through a series of eliminations, the top eight will play the league in a selected club, where we will find out who the greatest talents are among them. The two best competitors, together with the players of the football club chosen, will represent the club in the final competition, which will be held on December 19 and 20, 2020. The winner will receive a valuable prize - PlayStation 5.
"We are honored to be the partner selected by Hrvatski Telekom to work together to enable Croatian e-sports talent to compete on behalf of the best Croatian football clubs," said Nikola Stolnik, founder and director of Good Game Global, a partner company in the e-League project.
In addition to the clubs Dinamo, Hajduk, Rijeka, and Osijek, the project partners are Samsung and Sofa Score.
