FIFA 22: FabienneXIII and FOKUS make HISTORY in the FUT Champions Cup

The Team of the Season promo is well underway in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, with the most recent squad landing with a host of superstars included.

Away from the world of Team of the Season, history has been made in the EA FIFA esports FUT Champions Cup.

History Made

Boundaries are continually being broken in the FIFA esports community, and this weekend was no different.

FabienneXIII - a competitive FIFA player representing FOKUSCLANGG - became the first woman to win a game in the history of the FUT Champions Cup.

Defeating Hexon_GodMode in the second round of the tournament, the 20-year-old VfB Stuttgart fan delivered success, leading to widespread joy amongst the FIFA community.

A Great Step Forward

With a push for further female representation in the FIFA esports sphere, FabienneXIII's victory represents a major step forward.

Not only does the German's victory showcase the ever-growing talent in the FIFA esports community, but it should also act as a point of inspiration for the next generation of players.

"1st game loss against notpxgboom
2nd game 9-11 win against hexongodmode
I'm done with the nerves."

With boundaries broken and the stigma fading, we're certain that this won't be the last time we see FabienneXIII on the winning side.

Women's Football in Gaming

Women's football may already feature in FIFA, but that isn't to say that more can't be done in order to further integrate professional teams and players.

With video game franchises, such as Football Manager, committing to a strong and precise inclusion of the women's game in future instalments, we feel that EA should also be working hard to expand the women's game further.

With the WSL and women's leagues around the world continuing to evolve - and with this latest inclusion in the history books - the future is undoubtedly bright for the women's game.
