Indian FIFAe Team is all set for an eFriendly against their South African counterparts in the FIFA 21 game, which gets underway on Saturday (May 22, 2021) at 8.30 PM IST.

The eFriendly will consist of four matches between eAthletes from both the Indian and the South African sides. Three points would be awarded to the winning side after each match-up, while a point will be shared between both the teams, should any of the matches end in a draw. The team with the most points at the end of the four match-up will win the eFreindly.

Should both the teams end up on the same number of points after the end of the four match-ups, a fifth tie-breaker will be played, to determine the winner.

India is set to be represented by four eAthletes in the eFriendly – Siddh Chandarana, Lokmanyu Chaturvedi, Vignesh Balaji, and Charanjot Singh.

The matches will be streamed live on the SAFAeDISKI YouTube and Twitch Channels.
