After a whole season of EA Sports FIFA 18 tournaments, the 2017 Fanta Masters Championship Finals hosted 32 of the best EA Sports FIFA players from all across the region, including Gulf’s best from KSA, Kuwait, UAE, Bahrain, as well as the Levant with Jordan, for a two day grand final event hosted at the PLG Studio facility at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. The stakes this year were even higher than the 2016 season, with double the prize pool and the inclusion of Fanta Masters as an wild card qualifier for the eCopa Coca-Cola Finals, which is an EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Global Series’ Official League Partner Qualifying Competitions.

The tournament included many of the known veteran EA Sports FIFA players in the Arab world, such as Saif Haddadin, the returning champion last year’s qualifier, Abdulaziz Shido winner of FIWC twice, Mohamed Kamali of a previous 3-time Fanta Masters for Bahrain, Uzayr Marria, runner-up of 2016 Championship Finals and many more from around the region.
