Eye 4 Esports acquire first professional FIFA player

UK organisation Eye 4 Esports (aka E4) have picked up their first competitive FIFA player: Venezuelan-born and Miami-raised Abraham "Valbuena" Valbuena.

Commenting on the acquisition, organisation owner and founder Cory Benham said the following: "FIFA was always a game we looked to venture into, but were just awaiting the right opportunity to do so."

He went on to cite Valbuena’s recent success and the ‘tremendous growth’ of esports such as FIFA to signify the right time for the organisation to make this move.


"I’m going to work hard to show the world what E4 is all about!"


Valbuena said that he chose Eye 4 because they’re UK-based, explaining it would provide 'better exposure' and that they’re a team that 'really know the game of FIFA and football'.

"I feels honoured to be representing them and I’m going to work hard to show the world what E4 is all about!" he added.

Valbuena said that he is still pretty new to the esports scene, having only this year really started competing, but he's been playing FIFA for as long as he can remember, starting with FIFA '98. He clearly has a long-lived passion for the game.

More and more organisations continue to move into FIFA as an esport, including top professional football teams such as West HamManchester City and VFL Wolfsburg to name a few.

Fnatic has also partnered with AS Roma.

With the FIFA Interactive World Cup 2017 taking place in Wembley in August, we hope to see both E4 and Valbuena there!
