AAMeghessib's Back-2-Back is a unique eSport platform for FIFA 23 on PlayStation 5 in Qatar – It was born from players and for players. The format is to create a 2- player team and compete in offline qualifiers leading to the national final. The sportive angle is that teams need to score 2 consecutive goals to win in 11v11 Kick Off Mode. Further format details will follow below.
Why it’s different?
The 2 players versus 2 players format in 11v11 mode changes the whole game dynamics as well as supports the players to play with their favorite teammates using strategy, communication & skills. Teams are now focused on how well they can coordinate with their teammate to score two consecutive goals.
