Last year's finale took place at Central Hall, Westminster, but such is the sport's rapid rise in popularity, a step up was required to a bigger venue.

FIFA 18 heavyweights will now get the chance to perform in front of a huge crowd at The O2, with the winner receiving $250,000 in prize money - the highest amount in competitive FIFA history to date.
