The ePremier League season 2021/22 in FIFA 22 is coming up. The "Big 6" teams are competing, there are new modes and more money than ever before. Everything you need to know before the start of the season.
The ePremier League in England is the counterpart to the Virtual Bundesliga (VBL) in Germany. Of course, the official league advertises itself vigorously, because as everyone knows, the Premier League has been boasting for years that it is probably the most attractive league of the top 5 football leagues in Europe (and thus in the world).
If you take a look at the trailer, then you really get excited to see the best of the best in the country compete against each other. League CCO Will Brass already speaks of global success: "The popularity of the FIFA video game series allows us to connect with fans globally and, over the last three years, we have seen an increasing number of people from all over the world engage with the competition."
In comparison to the VBL, the ePremier League has something that the VBL lacks: all top clubs are participating. While the biggest clubs FC Bayern and Borussia Dortmund are missing in Germany, the "Big 6" are all represented in England.

ePremier League: Prize Pool of £100,000
It's already certain, that the new champions will be happy about a bigger prize pool. Because the ePremier League has a total prize pool of £100,000 this season. The winner will receive £30,000 and the second place will receive £15,000. The rest will be divided up to rank 16 (out of 20).

All players will be hoping to emulate Manchester City’s Shaun "Shellzz" Springette, who lifted the 2020/21 ePremier League Trophy, triumphing in a penalty shootout victory over Leeds United representative Olle "Ollelito" Arbin in the Grand Final.
