Roar gunning for E-League title


Our XP Esports Queensland players have their eyes firmly set on the E-League title as we near the business end of the competition’s second instalment.

After six rounds of competition, our boys sit second on the E-League ladder trailing league leaders Melbourne Victory by just three points.

Despite being held to a draw in their last outing by Wellington Phoenix, wins over Western Sydney, Perth Glory, Sydney FC and Melbourne City leave the Roar in a strong position heading into the final weeks of the competition.


Next up is a clash against Newcastle Jets on Thursday night before games against Adelaide United and Central Coast round out the regular season.

Xbox player Andy ‘Akp0’ Phanouvong said his side’s recent victory over Melbourne City was pivotal to their title tilt, adding the sky was the limit for his side.

“I think we could go all the way, we have proven we can beat anyone and hope to bring the title back for Brisbane Roar,” Phanouvong said.

“Our biggest challenge so far has been the Melbourne City game, having to step up in what was a title decider was a great feeling.”


XP Esports Australia Director and player mentor Brodie Fisher said he was delighted with the progress shown by his players this season.

“XP Esports Australia are immensely proud of the team in what has been an extremely successful campaign,” Fisher said.

“Dylan Banks with his outstanding performances, has proven to be one of Australia’s top players.”

“Andy Phanouvong and Isaac Havu have battled well to prove their status as rising talents in the Fifa esports scene.”

“XP Esports are proud to be supporting these players and furthering the growth and development of Fifa esports in Australia.”
