BT has netted exclusive coverage of the FIFA Ultimate Team Championship Series of interactive football gaming. It’s the first time EA Sports FIFA 17 competitive gaming will be broadcast in the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

The competition features the best FIFA 17 competitors in the world. Football fans will have a front row seat to the action on BT Sport. They can watch competitors strive to become the ultimate champion, competing on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles.

BT will broadcast the remaining four EA FIFA majors, starting with season two’s North American regional final in Vancouver on Saturday 8 April and the Asia Pacific regional final in Singapore on 22 April. Then, on Saturday 6 May BT will show the season two European regional final in Madrid. And on 20 and 21 May sit back and enjoy the FIFA 17 Ultimate Team Championship final in Berlin.

Simon Green (head of BT sport) says: “This is yet another example of live innovation from BT Sport. Competitive interactive football gaming is a rapidly growing industry and I’m delighted that BT Sport is now able to showcase it for the first time ever in the UK."
