Richard Buckley and Brandon Smith are FIFA esports commentators who shot to fame in 2017 when they won the EA SPORTS Commentators Cup. Impressing the judges with their expert knowledge of FUT and FIFA esports players, the commentators won their way through to the Berlin Final of the FUT Championships with EA SPORTS, commentating the final.
They haven’t looked back since and have since worked on the FIFA Interactive World Cup legs in LA, Doha and London, as well as working at many other esports FIFA events like the Gfinity Elite Series, Twitch Community Cup, FIFA 18 eWorld Cup, and the Ziggo eBattle with Ajax Amsterdam.
Richard and Brandon’s highlights so far:
- Being nominated for esports Casters of the year 2017
- Commentating for FIFA at the O2 and many major Premier League Grounds
- Hosting the FIFA 18 and FIFA 19 Grand Finals live on Sky Sports.
Richard and Brandon put a lot of their success down to hard work, making the most of all opportunities and never giving up. They have also seen the results of this in MattHDGamer’s career and many others in the esports industry so they want to encourage PlayStation F.C. Schools’ Cup players to do the same!
