Future File podcast: FIFA Ultimate Team and the rise of eSports

You may play video games. You may even be quite good at video games. But are you good enough to compete against thousands of other players for prize money that runs to millions of pounds?

Video gaming has grown up and the result is “eSports” a nickname for professional video gaming where the top players are celebrities in their own right.

Although eSports got its start in strategy based games in Asia, it’s now spread to western titles like Call of Duty, Counter-Strike and FIFA Ultimate Team.

Joining host Jeff Parsons this week is Chuboi , a professional FIFA eSports caster and content creator on platforms like YouTube and Twitch.

Chuboi is in London to commentate on the Gfinity Elite Series tournament taking place this evening but he’s also knows A LOT about FIFA Ultimate Team.
