THE inaugural QPR eCup kicks off across west London and beyond on Thursday night as R’s fans battle it out to be crowned the first ever champion.
And those supporters participating in the FIFA19 competition on their PlayStation could be in for a surprise as a number of familiar faces have also decided to take part.
QPR co-owner Tony Fernandes has signed up, along with R’s players Ebere Eze, Pawel Wszolek, Bright Osayi-Samuel, Ilias Chair, Sean Goss, Aramide Oteh, Charlie Owens and Olamide Shodipo.
The first round of fixtures has been made and it seems QPR team-mates Eze and Shodipo go head to head! Bragging rights are already at stake!
The final of the online knock-out competition will be taking place at the Fan Zone on 16th February* ahead of our game with Leeds United at Loftus Road.
Both finalists will receive two match tickets for the Championship fixture, while the overall winner will be presented with the QPR eCup trophy on the pitch in front of the R’s fans.
The full dates for the one-v-one contest are as follows:
