News > The FIFA eClub World Cup 2020: Complexity Claim Cup Glory!
After three days of competitive FIFA action, the FIFA eClubWorld Cup 2020 championship went to North American side, Complexity Gaming! “Joxan” and “MaXe” overcame Gareth Bale’s new Ellevens Esports in a dramatic penalty shootout after a nail-biting third-leg tie.
Let’s take a look at the road to the FIFA eClub World Cup 2020 finals in Milan!
Middle Eastern team, Nasr Esports, entered the Round of 16 as clear underdogs, drawing eClub World Cup favourites, Hashtag United. After pulling off a huge upset, however, Nasr would ultimately meet their demise in the quarter-finals to Ellevens, losing 4-1 over the three legs.
In the other quarter-final match on this side of the bracket, competition favourites, Fnatic, confirmed their semi-final match-up with Ellevens, by recording a 6-3 victory over Borussia-E-Sports.
Following a disappointing 3-0 first-leg loss, Ellevens valiantly fought back to defeat Fnatic 6-3 in a performance that would have pleased new co-founder, Gareth Bale.

On the opposite side of the bracket, AS Roma and Complexity Gaming ensured a semi-final match up as both sides cruised to 5-2 against Sporting CP and NEO, respectively. In the following game, Complexity were just too strong for the Italian side as they swept their opponents aside in a 4-1 victory, and ultimately set themselves up for an Ellevens Esports-Complexity Gaming finals.
The FIFA eClub World Cup 2020 Champions Crowned! And so, the final-showdown would see Complexity Gaming face Ellevens Esports, with both looking to secure their first FIFA eClub World Cup championships.
Complexity Gaming dominated their opponents in the first leg, with a 2-0 win while Ellevens Esports were able to secure the second in a 2-1 win, taking the tie to a tie-breaker decider.
The third game went to extra time, but neither team could produce a goal, consequently taking the game to a penalty shootout; Complexity saved Ellevens last penalty, subsequently claiming a 2-1 victory!
Complexity have become just the third team to claim the eClub World Cup, following in the footsteps of two-time winners Brondby and KING eSports. The eClub World Cup competition prize money of $40,000 will be shared between their two players, Joksan "Joksan" Redona and Max "MaXe vip" Popov, and each will receive 2,000 Global Series Points each.
