Thursday is again a double header with Insomnia and VISCA eSports being our opponents in the VPG Premier League.

We caught up with the team's head coach earlier today and he said "We are aware of the challenge ahead of us, and I do believe thatt the VPG Premier League is one of the toughest and the most competitive leagues out there.

"After our Play-Off win, we've only had two weeks to bring players in and rebuild for the new season. I am happy with the lads and how we are looking ahead of our first match against Oxford United eSports.

"This will be our first match against a fellow professional team in FIFA 19, and I know myself, JCC, and the rest of the lads are just excited to get the season underway!"

Games this season will take place on Monday and Thursday at 9pm and 9:30pm, with Tueday games taking place at 9pm. Cup matches will be scheduled throughout the season, and we will let you know time and dates closer to the fixture.
