20 March 2020 – Due to the continued impact of COVID-19 around the world, EA has suspended all EA SPORTS FIFA 20 Global Series events until further notice. This includes the 2020 SAFA eCup, the official South African qualifying programme for the FIFA eNations Cup.
“Our decision is driven to ensure the safety of our competitors, staff and partners as well as ensuring the EA SPORTS FIFA 20 Global Series does not contribute to the spread of the pandemic,” the communique from EA Sports read. “As we continue to monitor the situation around the coronavirus and receive updated guidance from health officials around the world, we will use this time to determine next steps for moving forward with all of EA’s Competitive Gaming live events and online broadcasts.”
The 2020 edition of the FIFA eNations Cup was scheduled to take place in Copenhagen, Denmark, from 22 to 24 May where 24 nations were to compete for the FIFA eNations Cup trophy and $40,000 in prize money and FIFA Global Series points.
