Miguel Layún, the only Mexican footballer to play in the three main European leagues (Italy, England and Spain), announced this Wednesday that he will organize the second edition of the ‘Layún Invitational,’ now with a FIFA 21 tournament.
“It will be ‘top’ quality. We are going to play 19esports against ‘top’ clubs worldwide, one of them will be the English Wolverhampton,” the Mexican America side said in a transmission on his Twitter account.
The defender, who played the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and Russia 2018 with Mexico, did not reveal the date of the tournament or the other participants, but he did announce that Mexican gamers who want to play it will have to overcome a tie on 22 and 23 October to which you can already register.
“The winner will have access to play the final with us or against us,” said the former player of Spanish Sevilla and English Watford.
In addition to the tie, gamers will be able to earn a place in the ‘Layún Invitational’ if they generate conversation on Twitter with the label of the event.
“The second way to participate is by sending tweets with the tags #layuninvitational and #19esports, in which they will have to comment on the event, say they want to participate. The more tweets they send, the more chances they have to win. The winners will be nine, one will take a 19esports jersey and eight will play a pro club with me and the two FIFA ‘gamers’ of the team, “he said.
The defense of the Eagles promised that among the participants there will be professional footballers, as in the first edition of the tournament in which Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernández, among others, played PUBG Mobile.
The 33-year-old athlete revealed that the game narrators will be the commentators of Mexican television Christian Martinoli and Luis García.
“We believe that the eSports scene not only has to be entertainment, but that they live with us, get to know each other among the ‘gamer’ community. It is the first event we launched and we ask for your support,” said Layún.
Last July, Layún celebrated one year with 19esports, his electronic sports team in which he has teams in the Valorant, FIFA and PUBG Mobile video games, with a presence in Mexico and Europe.
