Following the 21.5% growth rate of esports, experts were intrigued to find out which are the countries best at playing FIFA! To do this, they scraped Escharts for data on 6 major FIFA tournaments with global representation in the 2022-2023 season and then created an index of “overall FIFAe success score” based on each nation’s total winnings ($) and the number of top 5 rankings.

A FIFA game enthusiast from the UK told Live Football Tickets how they see the rising of FIFA Esports the industry: 

“I think it’s a great thing to have different types of games become popular in the esports scene. Most esports games are shooters, so it’s nice to see other genres become prominent. I enjoy seeing a game pushed to its limits, where people can leverage every bit of information they have about the game to gain an advantage.

“I think if FIFA wants to seriously compete and develop in the esports industry, they need to switch to a core model, stop releasing yearly games, just release one last FIFA game, and update it forever for free.”
