FIFA: Unleash the Dragon

6th February 2016

exceL eSports is delighted to welcome the latest addition to our ever-present FIFA team, Sean 'Dragon' Allen. On FIFA 15, Sean had a lot of success in a variety of tournaments, finishing T4 in #PlayLikeALegend Season 1, runner-up at ESWC and winning the UK Premier Gaming £1,000 event. With the recent departure from Graham from our team and with Anton and Marlut narrowly missing out on places at the Gfinity and XboxUK #PlayLikeALegend 2 tournament next weekend, we set out to bolster our ranks once again. The arrival of Sean ensures that the PLAL2 LAN event on Saturday 13th February, live from the Gfinity Arena in London, we will have double representation with Sean attending, in addition to Sam 'Poacher' Carmody who will also be representing exceL.FIFA.

Managing Director Joel Holmes-Darby commented on the addition of Sean to our team:

"I am delighted to be able to bring Sean on board with us. Ever since I first started attending FIFA events last year he was always a player I was sure I would work with in the future. He's talented and was also a close friend of the players we had at the time. He's started really strongly on FIFA 16 and I look forward to bringing the best out in him at PLAL2 and future events this year."

We asked Sean to comment on his decision to join exceL eSports and his expectations for PLAL2:

"I'd be silly not to say I expect anything less than a win at PLAL2. I've had a lot of success in online tournaments and have beaten all of the top players. I feel like I've hit my peak and am confident I can produce my first proper Championship win. In my opinion, exceL eSports are the quickest upcoming organisation in eSports. I've also met Joel a few times and he is a great guy and I am definitely looking forward to working with him."
