How to watch the ePremier League Invitational FIFA 2020 tournament live online
If you’re desperately missing live sport during this time, you shouldn’t feel bad. It’s something many of us turn to during tough times and, at the toughest time we’ve faced as a country in 80-odd years, that comfort has been taken away.
And while a virtual FIFA 2020 tournament featuring Premier League players may not be the same as visiting your team’s stadium every weekend, it is… something. The tournament kicks off tomorrow with all proceeds going to the NHS and features some of the Premier League’s biggest names.
Some of the players involved in the tournament are: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Todd Cantwell (Norwich City), Ryan Fredericks (West Ham United), Diogo Jota (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) and Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace).

How to watch the ePL Invitational FIFA 2020 tournament.
The ePremier League invitational tournament will commence on Tuesday 21st April and will air on the Premier League website, app as well as its YouTube, Facebook and Twitter channels. The semi-finals and final will also air on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League in the UK and NBC Sports in the US.
All proceeds will be donated to the NHS as part of the #PlayersTogether initiative. We may still be a few months away from crowning a Premier League Champion in the real world, but this tournament might scratch an itch for some footy-starved folks for just a little while.
