FIFA 20 YANA Cup Supported by Barclays
Who would do better in a game of FIFA 20: professional football players at the top of their game, or esports teams who’ve made a name for themselves in their field? The answer will be revealed this Saturday as groups like AS Roma, Fnatic, LAFC, Ninjas in Pyjamas and many more go head to head on the PS4.
Get the whole family in on the fun with YANA’s custom server for Minecraft: Java Edition! Some of the custom game modes offered by YANA include “Splegg”, a minigame where players use eggs to knock each other off a floating platform; and WaterWars, a unique minigame where players compete to be the last man standing.
