Ligue 1 have announced a partnership with FIFA 17, resulting in the formation of an official French FIFA 17 league.
This will mean each of the 20 teams in the league will draft two players (one Xbox and one PS4 player) and the winners of the league will go through to the Champions League.
However the development of a pro league means that FIFA 17 coins
could finally be taking part in larger eSport events.
As currently FIFA has always been somewhat seperate from then rest of the eSporting world, due to the majority of other divisions focusing on games such as League of Legends and Call of Duty.
eSports is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, and also one of the most lucrative, with this year's The International (the world's biggest League of Legends event) bringing in a total prize money of $20,770,460.
