eMLS | George Adamou Begins Campaign for 2021 eMLS Cup

Reigning eMLS Cup Champion, George Adamou, is ready to defend his title in 2021.

eMLS League Series One kicks off on Tuesday, January 5, with four matches against fellow gamers. Adamou enters the 2021 season as the top-ranked Playstation player in eMLS Power Rankings

Adamou, a Queens native, joined RBNY’s eMLS team last December after breaking onto the scene and climbing the FIFA Global Series rankings to be the top-ranked American on PlayStation for FIFA 20.

Adamou continued his rise throughout 2020, making it to the final of eMLS League Series One before lifting the eMLS Cup in June, beating cross-town rival NYCFC’s eMLS Player, Chris Holly, in the final.

Amadou will face off against Inter Miami CF, D.C. United, LAFC and Vancouver Whitecaps on Tuesday night, with matches beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Adamou is a Business Management major at Adelphi University. He played soccer growing up in Queens, serving as a captain for Benjamin N Cardozo High School’s team and also playing club soccer for Bayside AV juniors. He committed to play at Adelphi University before injury, which ultimately led to him shifting focus to playing FIFA at a high level.
