EACC Spring 2022 to be hosted by ONE Esports from April 18th to 24th

(Esports news) The EACC Spring 2022 will continue the 2022 season of EA SPORTS™ FIFA Online 4 esports events. The inter-Asian esports tournament for EA SPORTS™ FIFA Online 4 will be hosted by Electronic Arts (“EA”) and the Official Tournament Organizer and Lead Agency, ONE Esports.

The Spring edition of the EACC will take place online from 18 April to 24 April and will be broadcast across China, Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam. The tournament will feature 12 teams competing over a week of intense competition for a total US$100,000 prize pool.

The EACC first began in 2014 as the EA SPORTS™ FIFA Online 3 Spearhead Invitational, being the first-ever international EA SPORTS™ FIFA Online esports competition. It later evolved into the Asian Cup in 2015, finally becoming the EA Champions Cup in 2016. Since then, it has brought together the best professional FIFA Online 4 teams twice a year, in a battle to become the champions of Asia.


EACC Spring 2022 comes with a new format this year. Three teams from each participating country – China, Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam – each consisting of three to four players, will battle it out in a two-sided double-elimination styled bracket. During this double-elimination bracket, each matchup will be played in a Best-of-5 format, meaning that teams must win at least three games out of the maximum five games played to advance.

Unlike previous seasons, this season’s Best-of-5 format will no longer include a “winner stays”-rule for the selection of the representing athletes. Instead, both teams in the matchup will nominate a different individual athlete for each of the first three games. For the optionally required games four and five, the athletes from games one, two, and three can be re-nominated. As a result, a single athlete can only compete in a maximum of two games during a single matchup between two EA SPORTS™ FIFA Online 4 teams, putting a greater focus on the performance and tactics of the entire team.
