As per the broadcasting partnership agreement, the European Regional Qualifiers and Playoffs will be shown on the BBC iPlayer, plus BBC Sport’s website and app. Viewers can watch the competition on EA Sports FIFA’s Twitch and YouTube channels.
Post the live broadcasts, FIFA 21’s Global Series programming will be available on BBC iPlayer for 30 days. This will allow fans to engage in a prolonged viewing experience.
Top FIFA teams are currently competing from around the globe for a massive prize pool of $3 million. BBC iPlayer will provide live coverage of each match, broadcasting up to eight hours of FIFA esports content per day.

BBC is the ideal partner as it will allow millions of UK fans the opportunity to watch one the most popular games played at the highest level.”
