Musaed AlDossary was crowned the champion of the highly anticipated FIFA 2018 eWorld Cup Final which took place on the 2nd to the 4th of August in the O2 Arena in London. Following the three days of intense competition, AlDossary battled it out for the grand prize taking home the title and the grand prize of $250,000.
The three-days finals witnessed 32 elite players from a global pool of 20 million players who tried to qualify.
