Coronavirus: EA suspends live esports events
Due to the spread of the novel coronavirus, EA has announced that it will suspend all events for EA's competitive gaming series.

This includes Apex Legends Global Series, EA SPORTS FIFA 20 Global Series, FIFA Online 4 Live Events and Madden NFL 20 Championship Series. All third-party events held under license with EA are also included in this suspension. Naturally, all events that are held online will continue because participants and staff operate remotely.



"Our priority is protecting our competitors, our employees, our partner's employees and our communities. As we continue to monitor the situation around the coronavirus and receive updated guidance from health officials around the world, we will use this time to determine next steps for moving forward with all of EA's Competitive Gaming live events and online broadcasts," a statement from EA reads.

EA previously closed several international offices and is encouraging its staff to work from home in North America, Europe, and Australia, at least until early April.
