Asensio triumphed in an initiative that earned €140,000 to help fight Coronavirus.
Without live football for the next few weeks, as the Premier League, EFL and other leagues decided to suspend until April at the earliest. However, that hasn't stopped clubs' competitive spirits on social media. We've seen games of crosses and connect four between different football clubs, be it on Twitter or Facebook, while some have even repeated memorable matches on their Youtube channels. But we're now set to see a whole different tournament, on a digital pitch.
FIFA 20 is one of the most popular football videogames on the planet, and now we're about to witness the likes of AS Roma, SL Benfica, Wolves, Aston Villa, Celta de Vigo and West Bromwich go head to head in a global contest.
FIFA 20 Ultimate QuaranTeam is a tournament between multiple international clubs featuring on EA Sports' video game, with them going head to head to try to win it all. 128 teams will take part in the straight knockout competition, with clubs choosing which person will pick up the pad to represent their club.

Well, several clubs have already begun taking care of this aspect. Twitch is an online gaming streaming platform, where you can watch multiple players take part in different games. Most of these clubs have already joined Twitch to live stream their matches for the fans. You can also check Facebook, as clubs’ social media managers are keen on putting content there as well.
With football on standby at the moment, what better thing other than a FIFA tournament to entertain the fans? Part of the money will also be donated to fight the Covid-19 pandemic everyone’s facing at the moment. Leyton Orient, one of the clubs participating, have created a JustGiving page to raise €50.000 to different causes. A beautiful gesture.
Plenty of big results so far, and we're working on getting it all out for you to mull over soon!— Leyton Orient (@leytonorientfc) March 22, 2020
In the meantime, if you've enjoyed it, would be great if you could spare a couple of quid for our great causes.
