Guild Esports, the UK-based esports organization co-owned by the famous footballer David Beckham has teamed up with Samsung to host a FIFA-related entertainment show called Squad Goals.

The live show will be hosted by two English hosts — TN25 who is a content creator for Guild Esports and Iain Chambers, Guild host who is also an owner and a founder of the social media agency Braincup Media.

Guild Esports has also recently started its own esports college in partnership with SCL Education. Last year, the org launched Guild Academy featuring games such as Fortnite and Rocket League, with Valorant and FIFA added later.

What is the show about

Each week, during the live-streamed episodes, the hosting duo will talk about the current FIFA Team of the Week before they will be joined by weekly guests to discuss football and FIFA, including the EA Sports Cup. 

Nick Westwood, Guild Esports Creative Director, commented in the release:

“The worlds of real life football and the gaming football community are uniquely linked with performances on the pitch relating to their rating in the game and the weekly Team of the Week – we have long wanted to make a fun chat show format that brings this to life and we are grateful for our partner Samsung’s help in delivering this series.” 

Where to watch & prizes 

Each week, one guest will get the chance to go up against the hosts of the show on the Samsung Neo QLED TV to showcase the gaming experience on Samsung’s latest TV series. 

The collaboration will feature three episodes of two hours each. The first two live sessions took place on November 2 and November 9, with the final session set to be streamed tomorrow, November 16. The series can be watched live on Guild Esports Twitch channel. 

The first streaming session featured the guest duo of Ben Whittaker who is a silver medalist at the Tokyo Olympics 2020 and Rachel Stringer who is a broadcaster and host of many FIFA esports broadcasts.

During the first streaming session, Ben Whittaker who is a silver medalist from Tokyo 2020 Olympics, went up against TN25. Despite Ben fighting hard with Tottenham Hotspur F.C against TN25’s Arsenal FC, it wasn’t enough as TN25’s Arsenal FC took the win with the score of 4-2. 

Viewers at home also have a chance to win Samsung Neo QLED 4K TV by voting #ben2win or #TN25win and liking and sharing the live stream on Twitter.
