The Digital league, the first such competition in the world, transfers the Liga BBVA and Liga Adelante into the videogaming realm. Players can register for any of the 42 clubs in the top two divisions and can represent either the reserves or play as a first team member in the National Digital League. All of the activities of the FC Barcelona team of videogamers can be followed at www.onlinechampions.com, a complete social network based around digital football. The best football videogamers in the world are waiting to form part of Barça’s own digital team. There will also be talent scouts charged with monitoring the developments and results of the participants in order to pick the finest players for the first team squad.
All fans can consult this video by the LFP that summarises the essence of this new competition.
The reserve videogamers will reflect the spirit of La Masía. In other words, not only will there be competition, but an ambience of training. All of the players that register for the Digital League in representation of FC Barcelona will get classes and advice on how to improve their game and get better results. The players in the FCB Barcelona digital first team will represent the Club in the Digital League while the others will do likewise in the Academy League.
Registration for the FC Barcelona team of videogamers is open to everybody around the world. This is a competition in which players compete online via their computers or consoles. Along with the honour of forming part of the FC Barcelona digital football team, players registering in the Club’s name will compete as part of its reserve system, and those that display the most prowess may be selected to move up to the first team squad and play in the top flight matches.
