Glory have strengthened their E-League stocks with the signings of Sarge Singh and Dillon Gomes for the 2020 season.
As part of the FIFA 20 Global Series, Singh and Gomes are eyeing a prestigious berth at the FIFA eWorld Cup in 2020.
Singh will compete for the Xbox title, while Gomes is set to represent the club in the PlayStation 4 division.
Switching from PS4 to Xbox in 2020, Singh (known by his gamer tag SARGE FIFA) topped the regular season table in 2019 while representing E-League Premiers Melbourne Victory.
Marking 10 years since his first competitive appearance at the 2010 FIFA Interactive World Cup, the 26-year-old will have his eye on toppling Melbourne City’s Marcus Gomes at the top of the Xbox tree.
Dillon Gomes, meanwhile, is the younger brother of Marcus and as part of the FUTWIZ team, has enjoyed a meteoric rise through the FIFA Rankings.
In January 2019, the now-18-year-old cracked the top 100 global rankings for Playstation as Australia’s fourth-best FIFA 19 player.
A remarkable, precocious talent, Gomes will have his eye on emulating his brother’s success against incumbent PS4 champion and FUTWIZ teammate Marko Brijeski.
