Philip Billing is the Cherries' representative as he goes head to head with Premier League rivals in a special EA SPORTS FIFA 20 tournament.

The Cherries midfielder will be joining a host of top Premier League footballers who will all be putting their EA SPORTS FIFA 20 skills to the test in the inaugural ePremier League Invitational tournament.

A host of familiar faces are going head to head as they represent their clubs in a knockout tournament from the comfort of their own homes to find out who competes in the final, which will feature in a live show on Sky Sports on Saturday 25th April.

The prize fund is being donated to the #PlayersTogether initiative, which was created by Premier League players as a collective way of generating funds for the National Health Service and distributing them where they are needed most. The tournament will also continue to urge everyone to follow official advice by staying home and saving lives.

Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said: "The thoughts of everyone at the Premier League are with all those directly affected by Covid-19.

"In response to the pandemic, the Premier League, our clubs and players are providing valuable support for communities and the NHS.

"We are also aware of the importance of finding new ways to entertain fans at this time and we are excited to bring together a strong line-up of players for the ePremier League Invitational tournament.

"With Sky Sports screening the competition live in the UK and many of our international broadcast partners also showing the matches, fans around the world can tune in and enjoy the action. We know how popular FIFA 20 is with players and I am looking forward to seeing who will be crowned the ePL Invitational champion."

Among the players joining Billing and competing in the tournament are Trent Alexander-Arnold, Todd Cantwell, Ryan Fredericks, Diogo Jota, Raheem Sterling and Wilfried Zaha.

The full line-up will be confirmed ahead of the draw for the tournament, which takes place on Monday 20th April’s edition of The Football Show on Sky Sports News and Sky Sports Main Event from 9am.

The opening rounds feature four matches per day between midday and 4pm from Tuesday 21st April to Friday 24th April. The semi-finals and final will be televised live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League at 3pm on Saturday 25th April.

Fans can watch all the action throughout the week on the Premier League website, app, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter channels; Sky Sports YouTube and Twitch channels as well on the Football Daily YouTube channel. Sky’s coverage will be hosted by Saturday Social’s Adam Smith and Joe Thomlinson who will be joined by influencer Harry Pinero.
