This Thursday, thirteen year-old Le Ha Anh Tuan representing Buriram United is on a mission to prove that age is just a number as he looks to claim the crown in the ELITE category.
Having started to play the game since he was six years old, Le Ha Anh Tuan can be considered a veteran of the game. Mesmerizing fans and viewers since the start of the Champions eFootball, he has demonstrated total dominance against his opponents, scoring an astounding 39 goals in only 4 matches in the competition.
With a perfect winning record in the Group Stages and having overcome his toughest challenge against Chonburi FC’s Akanichi in the Semifinals, he is undeniably a favorite heading into the Grand Finals of Champions eFootball’s ELITE Category.
Standing in his way is Indonesian wonderkid Indra Sugandi representing Persib Bandung.
At 27 years old, Indra is no stranger to efootball and has multiple accolades to his name. Similar to Le Ha Anh Tuan, the Persib Bandung esports player is also on an unbeaten streak in his 4 matches in Champions eFootball. This clash between Persib Bandung and Buriram United is expected to display the highest level of efootball action the competition has seen yet.
Besides the ELITE Grand Final, the final matchday will also feature a fight for 3rd place between Nor Haikal of Johor Darul Ta’zim FC against Vorravich Anantarak of Chonburi FC as both competitors were knocked out in the Semi Finals against the finalists.
