Fox Fans League unearths first winners

The inaugural Fox Fans League is a step closer to crowning the best FIFA 15 player in the country after gamers began battling it out at Westfield Shopping Centres over the long weekend.

In a joint initiative, Football Federation Australia had teamed up with Fox Sports, EA Sports, PlayStation®4 and Westfield in the search to find Australia’s console champion.

The tournament kicked off at Westfield's in Plenty Valley and Knox in Victoria and Liverpool in NSW, with the qualifying rounds seeking to unearth 16 of the best Ultimate Team masters.

Gamers were today joined by stars from Western Sydney Wanderers and Melbourne Victory as they represented their favourite Hyundai A-League club in the hope their quick wits - and thumbs - would be good enough to see them progress.

In Westfield Knox Melbourne Victory stars Dylan Murnane and Jordan Brown were on hand to see Neville Ackermann from Berwick come from a goal down in the final to take out his local district, with all the drama called by Fox Sports commentator Michael Zappone.

The national final is set to take place on 29 April and will be broadcast live nationally on Fox Sports with match commentary from the Fox Sports football team.

Further adding to the appeal, PlayStation 4 will celebrate its National Premier Leagues partnership by giving one PS4 NPL player a prize of $5,000 and the opportunity to secure a wildcard place directly into the main event.
