Although the results of football clubs in e-sports remain discreet, their commitment to them and especially the EA Sports simulator FIFA 18 only increases. This week, Manchester City has announced the expansion of its FIFA team with the signing of a second player, the Dane Marcus ‘ExpectSporting’ Jorgensen.
“I am very happy to take a new step in my career in electronic sports at the hands of Manchester City. It has been a year full of success and I have enough motivation and ambition to take my game one step further, “said the Danish player.
From Manchester City, the director of marketing of the club, Núria Tarré, has ensured that they are excited about the signing of ExpectSporting to represent them both in tournaments and in events with fans around the world. “The growth of electronic sports during the last 18 months is significant and our increasing presence in this sector has given us a new channel through which to connect with City fans,” he added.
ExpectSporting specializes in the PlayStation 4 platform, so it serves as a complement to their new partner Kiera ‘Kez’ Brown, XBOX One expert. This division by consoles is due to the format used by official FIFA competitions such as FIFA Interactive World Cup – from this year’s FIFA eWorld Cup – or the FIFA Interactive Club World Cup, in which the players of each video console advance through different tables until the final, in which a game is played on each of the platforms.
Precisely the FIFA Interactive Club World Cup, which has only played one edition to date, is the great milestone in the career of ExpectSporting, as he managed to win it this year in London defending the colors of the Danish Brondby IF. After winning the PlayStation table, in the final had to face the French FIFA 18 player Fouad Fares, representative of Olympique de Lyon and XBOX expert. After losing the game in the console of Microsoft by 4-2, he showed his dominance in PS4 and inflicted a hard 6-1 with which he took the cat to the water.
