QPR move into esports with 11-player FIFA team

Championship football side Queens Park Rangers have announced a new esports team.

They've teamed up with FIFA league provider Virtual Pro Gaming to move into competitive gaming.

Several gamers have already signed up to represent the R's on the esports platform, which specialises in the 11-versus-11 mode Pro Clubs on FIFA 18.

Players include Wilco Jager, JCC and more.

QPR are currently trialling for more positions - trials start tonight at around 6pm. Interested players can add Dellosa24 on PSN for more details.

Another live trial game will take place on Saturday November 11th at 7.45pm. There are more details on The Hoops' esports Facebook page and Twitter page.

Once the roster is complete, QPR will play on a regular basis, with one match a week streamed live via the club's YouTube platform.

QPR Commercial Director Euan Inglis said in this announcement post: "We're excited to be taking our first steps into esports with Virtual Pro Gaming.

"There is great scope for us to take this partnership with VPG from strength to strength over the coming seasons, with esports very much at the forefront of our digital strategy going forward."

Alongside this, QPR owner Tony Fernandes - who is also group CEO of AirAsia - announced the AirAsia Allstars Esports Club earlier this year.
