NASHVILLE – We’ve got more virtual soccer lined up for you this Sunday.
In lieu of our scheduled match at Citi Field in New York, Nashville SC eMLS athlete Cormac “Doolsta” Dooley will take on New York City FC’s NYCChris in a EA Sports FIFA 20 clash presented by Gibson this Sunday at 1 p.m. CT. The match will be streamed live on Nashville SC’s Twitch, Facebook and Twitter.
Here are all of the details on how you can get your soccer fix this Sunday.
Doolsta and NYCChris will face off over two legs, with the winner decided based on aggregate score. They will be using rosters built using the FIFA Ultimate Team tools. Both squads will wear their respective club’s jerseys, as Nashville SC’s jersey was recently added to the Ultimate Team mode.
Normal FIFA Ultimate Team roster rules apply, with the additional caveat that each gamer must build their rosters with 10 club players and one Icon card.
Tale of the Tape
Doolsta joined Nashville SC for the 2020 eMLS season after completing a sweep of all three eMLS events in 2019 with the Philadelphia Union. Before this season was put on hold, Doolsta performed well with a quarterfinal finish in eMLS League Series One Philadelphia. After an early exit at eMLS League Series Two Portland, Doolsta found himself in 10th place in the eMLS standings. Meanwhile, NYCChris has become one of the world’s best FIFA players, winning the 2019 eChampions League last May against some of the best from around the world. In 2020, NYCChris was sitting in third place in the eMLS standings before the league was paused. At League Series One in Philadelphia, Doolsta got the better of NYCChris with a 1-0 win.
