The Fifa eClub World Cup gets started in Italy on Friday 7 February.

It’s a huge e-sports competition which is taking place in Milan with 24 teams from all over the world battling it out to be crowned the winner.

In the last five years, competitive gaming has become not just a fun activity to do with your mates, but a pretty highly paid job!

In fact, one American teenager won $3million (that’s about £2.3million) for winning the Fortnite World Cup in 2019 – that’s enough to buy 10 thousand Playstations with enough change for a few games!

The first prize at the Fifa eWorld Cup is $40,000 which is around £30,000.
