The Play Like a Legend World Grand Final is almost here! After hosting two breath-taking seasons, Xbox is now ready to present to you the final series of the Play Like a Legend Championship. Sixteen of the world’s best FIFA 16 Ultimate Team players will battle head-to-head for a slice of the $15,000 prize pool live at the Gfinity Arena, 7th - 9th May 2016.
The fixtures showcased in Season 2 of the Play Like a Legend Championship were on par with any Champions League match. Our final was a classic derby between fellow teammates, Epsilon Gorilla and Epsilon Daxe. Gorilla comfortably retained his crown and $4,000 with a 5 - 1 victory over Epsilon Daxe, who took home $2,000 and the runners-up trophy ahead of Vitality Brian, who earned $1,000 for finishing 3rd.
With an abundance of amazing goals scored in Season 2, we've handpicked the best 5 goals of the competition for you to enjoy in the video below.
