EA SPORTS FIFA 19 is almost here.

The globally popular video game will be dropping the latest edition this week, and as part of the release, there will be a launch event in Atlanta on Wednesday. The event will be streamed live on Twitter and YouTube, will include notable names, and will feature a FIFA 19 tournament.

That tournament will kick things off, to be used as a scouting ground for Atlanta United to look for an eMLS representative for the club, the club's first.

It will be followed by a 2v2 showcase, including former NFL star and avid FIFA player Chad Johnson, Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka, and other notable names from the soccer, gaming and entertainment worlds.
