FIFA site FUTWIZ signs UK player Tom Lesse

FIFA Ultimate Team community website and esports team FUTWIZ has signed promising young UK FIFA player Tom Lesse.

Playing under the gamertag ThomasLeese7 on the PS4, Tom appeared on the FIFA scene during Season 1 of the FIFA 17 FUT Champions regional in Paris, where he made the top six.

But due to educational commitments involving his final year, he was unable to complete during the full year of FUT Champions.

Now free of those commitments, Tom is ready to play more regularly.

He said in a statement on the FUTWIZ website:  “I’m delighted to sign an academy contract with a company as big as FUTWIZ. A place in the academy will enable me to grow as an esports player and hopefully achieve big things in the next year of FIFA."

FUTWIZ was originally formed as an Ultimate Team Community that focused on player databases, squad builders and packs. The site would branch out into eSports earlier this year.

FUTWIZ co-owner Dan Bellis added:  "We’re thrilled that Tom has decided to become the newest member of Team FUTWIZ by joining our Academy. He showed an incredible amount of promise in FIFA 17 – progressing from an incredibly difficult group and making his way to a brilliant top six finish in his first live tournament."

The UK has historically performed well in FIFA esports. England's Spencer "Gorilla" Ealing won the 2017 FIFA Interactive World Cup in London back in August, while other young UK FIFA players like Tassal "Tass" Rushan, Christopher "Thee Bullock" Bullock, Ryan "R_STACKZZ X" Pessoa and Shaun "XSHELLZZ" Springette have all put in impressive stints over the past year or so.
