Saturday and Sunday: What Esports games are on?
Esports has got your back this weekend with another blockbuster round of contests, starting on Saturday.
There’s more from the FIFA Ultimate QuaranTeam tournament, while more mythical clashes await in the League of Legends, and we’ve got another round of rip-roaring action over in the Counter-Strike corner.
FIFA ULTIMATE QUARANTEAM
We’re getting to the business end of the inaugural FIFA Ultimate QuaranTeam tournament, which continues throughout the weekend.
Middlesbrough are among the favourites to go all the way, and they’re 8/11 favourites to defeat Australian side Central Coast Mariners on Saturday morning.

It’s the second semi-final of eWBSS’ Heavyweight Legends tournament on Saturday, and it’s a proper fight for the ages.
eMike Tyson takes on eGeorge Foreman for a place in the final. The two were arguably the biggest punchers the heavyweight division has ever seen, and it’s eIron Mike who is given 1/5 favouritism for this one.
