Brazil cemented themselves in history as the best FIFAe nation in the world on 14 July. With national pride on the line, 24 nations competed in the 2v2 format for a total prize pool of USD 1 million from 11 to 14 July.
The FIFAe Nations Cup 2023™ presented by Gamers8 came to a dramatic finish after four passionate days of competition.
Brazil, composed of PHzin, Resende and PauloNeto999 walked away as back-to-back FIFAe Nations Champions lifting the trophy for the second year in a row. Led by Phzin, Brazil is the first nation to repeat as FIFAe Nations champions and the first nation to win the pinnacle event twice.
Out of 86 Member Associations competing in this year’s FIFAe Nations Series, the best 23 qualified alongside the host nation Saudi Arabia, while Brazil rose above the rest of the competition. In addition to taking home USD 300,000 out of the total prize pool of USD 1 million for this competition, the team lifted the unique trophy as repeat champions.
“PHzin, he is a star; I’ve been saying this. He’s the best player in the world and he’s showing us again this season,” said Gabgol, the coach of Brazil. “He’s super special, we are glad he plays for Brazil.”
FIFA Legend and former professional football player Sami Al-Jaber was also in attendance to witness the action live in person:
“It’s incredible to see Saudi Arabia host the FIFAe Finals and I’m proud to see so many countries from across the world attend. This is a huge step for the Saudi Arabian community and for the growth of esports and football alike in the kingdom and I’m excited to see where it goes from here,” said Sami Al-Jaber, former captain of the Saudi Arabian national football team.
The excitement continues as the FIFAe World Cup 2023™ presented by Gamers8 begins on 16 July and will be the final competition of the FIFAe Finals 2023.
