SWINDON Town’s Cameron McGilp faces a difficult European away trip to Benfica in the first round of the FIFA Ultimate Quaran-Team esports competition.

The draw, which was published regularly through tweets from Leyton Orient’s official account, created some memorable ties - with Town’s virtual trip to Portugal up near the top.

If McGilp is to progress however, he will have to edge his way past the second best Fifa player in the world on Playstation 4 - Henrique “Zezinho” Lempke.

As a result of the ongoing global health pandemic cancelling the majority of professional sport worldwide, Town’s League Two rivals Leyton Orient came up with the idea of creating an online tournament where each football club has one representative in a one-off knock-out Club World Cup.

A hashtag was created on Twitter, and soon the initial 64-team tournament was doubled in size with further teams wishing to enter as well.

An incredible 128 teams are taking part in the competition from the Premier League down to League Two, as well as clubs from America, Australia, Europe and Africa.

Teams – who have the option to stream their games live online – must enter as themselves, and choose one person to represent the club throughout.

But the tournament will not just act as an escape for those seeking such, Orient is asking fans around the world to donate to a JustGiving page in order to support EFL clubs that will struggle throughout the fixture absence.

Orient say 75 per cent of the received funds will be given to the EFL within 28 days.

Not only that, but the remaining 25 per cent will be split evenly between the EFL’s chosen charity MIND and the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fundraiser by the World Health Organisation.
