PSG Esports (Paris St. Germain) and LGD Gaming are at it again. The two esports powerhouses have teamed up signing four players that will compete in FIFA Online 4, the popular free-to-play online soccer game that is available exclusively in Southeast Asia. This will not be the first collaboration between the two as they already have history together having partnered in forming a Dota 2 team that made it to the Finals of The International 8 this past August.
PSG.LGD’s four man roster will feature French player Johann ‘Maniika’ Simo, and three Chinese players.

PSG will follow in Manchester City’s footsteps as the second EU soccer organization to sign a FIFA Online team who did so this past June.
“We have always been very well-received in Asia, especially in China,” said PSG Esports Chief Gaming Officer, Yassine Jaada. “Our arrival on FIFA Online is very logical for Paris Saint-Germain, we are happy to start this new adventure hand in hand with LGD. Our eyes are already on 2019 and you can be sure that we are not done yet with our investments in China.”
All the competitors in Southeast Asia can qualify for the culminating event of the year known as the eWorld Cup. The eWorld Cup is by far the biggest and most illustrious FIFA competition on the planet.
