Tuesday 13th October, London – On Monday 12th October Maccabi Europe and Maccabi GB hosted the Maccabi Europe PS4 FIFA Final, with both finalists from Maccabi GB; Sam Whiteman and Adam Morrow. After three intense matches, 25 year old Sam Whiteman was crowned the Maccabi Europe PS4 FIFA champion with a 2-1 victory.
Maccabi PS4 FIFA winner Sam Whiteman commented ‘It feels great to be crowned the Maccabi PS4 FIFA winner. Adam is a fantastic player, which was shown when he beat me in the UK competition. I would like to thank to my parents for funding FIFA for me year on year, and of course, thanks to all my fans for supporting me throughout the competition.’
The final was streamed live to over 35 viewers on Twitch TV with supporters streaming in from across Europe.
