As you already know, the Impact signed EA Sports FIFA 18 eSports player Lyes Ould-Ramoul, better known by his online pseudonym LyesMTL. He’ll be representing the Montreal Impact in a few days at the PAX East convention in Boston, for the first ever eMLS Cup, from April 5 to 8.
“This is an amazing opportunity,” said LyesMTL, when his signing was announced on February 23. “I truly wasn’t expecting this when I first started, and I’m happy to see the club trusts me. I’ll do everything to represent the colours of the Impact and take advantage of this great opportunity.”
The eMLS Cup is a new competitive FIFA 18 league that will feature the best FIFA 18 players from the U.S. and Canada representing 19 MLS clubs. The stakes are high: other than North American supremacy, the finalists will also be entered into the EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Ultimate Club Global Series Playoffs and will represent the MLS, from which they can then qualify for the FIFA eWorld Cup in 2018.
