If you're a FIFA 19 esports fan, then EA has some good news for you. Today, the company released details about a new competition exclusive to PlayStation 4 owners that begins this Saturday, October 6th. The competition will be a qualifier for a new tournament, the Continental Cup 2018 Presented by PlayStation, that will take place during Paris Games Week from October 26th through the 28th. Players will compete to secure one of 31 spots.

In the days and weeks leading up to the Paris event, PlayStation will host up to 30 different PS4 live and online EA Sports FIFA 19 events around the world. PlayStation will also sponsor various EA Sports FIFA 19 events globally throughout the 2018 to 2019 season.

"This is a pivotal moment in EA competitive gaming's history, and it will enable us to add to the global ecosystem of the FIFA Global Series by reaching more PlayStation players," said Todd Sitrin, SVP and GM of the EA Competitive Gaming Division, in a release. "With PlayStation live events occurring around the world and airing on FS1, the PlayStation Network or leading esports digital channels such as Twitch and YouTube, we're extending the global dream of making stars of all our players."
