It's getting exciting in the VBL! The Grand Final is coming soon. The FIFA Individual Champion and the successor of Yannic 'Yannic0109' Bederke from FC Augsburg will be searched here.
The winner will not only be able to call himself the German FIFA Individual Champion for one year, but will also win a lot of money this year. The winner of the Grand Final round can look forward to 40,000 EUR in prize money.
In total, the VBL will pay out 100,000 EUR in prize money this year. A little bit more than twice as much as last season! But not only the winner of the Grand Final will get a lot of money. The runner-up can also look forward to 20,000 EUR in prize money. Participants of the semi-finals will get 7.500 EUR. Those who make it to the quarter finals can look forward to 3,250 EUR. Gamers who have reached positions 9 - 16 will receive 1,500 EUR.
