We’re delighted to announce that professional footballer Ritchie De Laet has joined Team FUTWIZ as an ambassador. The Belgian has enjoyed a hugely successful career in football so far, winning the English Premier League and Football League Championship and has played for some of the top clubs in the country. Ritchie combines his football career with a passion for gaming, as a keen FIFA player he has streamed FUT on his personal Twitch channel. He attended the recent FIFA eWorld Cup Grand Final with Team FUTWIZ as a guest, where Team FUTWIZ Pro Harry “Honey Badger” Blackmore secured a 5th place finish on PS4.

“I’m thrilled to join this amazing organization, having seen what they achieved last season. After having talked to Dan and some of the FUTWIZ players at the eWorld Cup Grand Final my mind was made up, I really wanted to join the team and help them in anyway I can not only for the upcoming season but hope for more seasons to come.”

“We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome Ritchie to Team FUTWIZ in an official capacity, with his experience in football combined with his passion for gaming it feels like the perfect fit. We’ve played a few games of FUT against each-other and unfortunately for me he’s beaten me each time – his 99 rated pro item is unstoppable! Ritchie is obviously a proven winner and brings an incredible amount of real-world football contacts and knowledge, we can’t wait to get started together.”
