Last weekend, the newly established Austrian eFootball national team met up to train together in Klagenfurt around the UNIQA ÖFB Cup final. Taking part was our eSports pro Fabio Özelt (FAOETNATION), who is therefore a founding part of Austria's FIFA 22 elite. The three-person Austria team is completed for two former players of ours. Maxi Mayrhofer was part of our team that won the eBundesliga in 2019/20, while Ajdin Islamovic played for us in the last eBundesliga season.
The three boys face their first big challenge around two weeks from now. On 19 May, Özelt & Co will take part in a qualifying tournament for the FIFAe Nations Cup.
