The Play Like a Legend 2 Season 1 finals were phenomenal. It was the perfect way to kick off the new season of 2016. We’re now halfway through the series and Xbox will be presenting another impressive season of the Play Like A Legend Championships on 26th March 2016 at the Gfinity Arena. Europe’s 12 best ranked FIFA 16 players will compete head-to-head for the $7,000 prize pool.
In season 1 spectators were entertained with plenty of goals, amazing comebacks and an abundance of talent. The event began with the Spencer FC Game Academy finals, which decided the outcome of final Play Like A Legend Season 1 invitation.
The quarter finals witnessed one of the greatest comebacks in the series so far; Kurt0411 vs OB Afro. In the semi-final matches between Epsilon Gorilla vs Vitality Brian was a goal fest. Both players went for an attacking approach and this was clearly evident in the final score. The other semi-finals match would see the former world champion Agge faceoff against new upcoming star OB Afro. Agge won the tie 2-1 to earn his place in the finals.
