eSports Premier League final preview

The eSports Premier League final stages take place on Friday evening.

Proceedings kick off with the semi-finals and final for both Xbox and PS4, with the winners of each console’s tournament then facing each other in the Grand Final in order to crown the ePL Grand Champion.

Whoever wins the event will lift the trophy and win £40,000.

The tournament will be live-streamed via the Premier League website and social media channels.

BT Sport 2 will be broadcasting the event live, with Sky Sports also streaming via their YouTube channel.

We spoke to Leeds United‘s Olle ‘Ollelito’ Arbin, who is taking part in the Xbox semi-finals, to get his thoughts ahead of the event.

“Dream come true” to win the trophy – Ollelito

When asked what it would mean to win the esports Premier League title, Ollelito was clear in his response.

He said: “It would mean a lot.

“I still have a bit of pressure from everyone around Leeds, like not necessarily that they put pressure on me, but I want to do as well as I can for them.”

“It would be a dream come true winning that trophy for them.”

Ollelito won his quarter-final tie 13-2 against Spurs player ELVNS Stokes.

And he is hoping to be keep that form going in the semi-finals against Arsenal’s Healy tonight.

“I’m looking forward to it a lot,” he explained.

“I just want to play, but I have a lot of respect for him [Healy].

“If you make the top four on each console, if it is PlayStation or Xbox, you are a very, very good player.

“I’m looking forward to it and hopefully we can take the win in that semi-final.”

And when asked what message he wanted to send to FIFA fans to tune in ahead of the Grand Final, he replied: “I think my message to them is to come and take a look at the stream.

“I think we have some of the best players playing in the whole world.

“Hopefully we can see some good FIFA from myself and the other players.”

Olle was speaking ahead of the ePL Finals. Watch live as eight finalists go head-to-head from 6pm, Friday 26 March on Sky Sports, BT Sport, BBC iPlayer, BBC Sport online, and all Premier League channels (, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube).
