The Apex Legends Global Series’ Major 1 and the EA SPORTS FIFA 20 Global Series competitions have been delayed as a result of the worldwide coronavirus epidemic, according to a Friday announcement from game developer Electronic Arts.

“Our community’s health is our number 1 priority,” EA stated in a tweet announcing the scheduling modifications.

The Apex Legends Major 1, which was supposed to take place from March 13–15 in Arlington, Texas, will now take place at an unspecified future time. The Apex Legends Online Tournament 2 will, however, take place as planned from March 21–23.

No make-up date has been determined for the CONMEBOL eLibertadores Online & Live Event that was scheduled for this coming Saturday and Sunday. The eChampions League online qualifiers will take place as scheduled on March 14 and 15, but EA said further information on the live event will be released later.

Both the FUT Champions Cup Stage V and the FIFA PlayStation Licensed Qualifying Event, both slated for April 3–5, in Bucharest, Romania, were postponed.

The Apex Legends Major 1 will begin with 80 teams whenever it is played. The teams’ placement in the winners bracket and losers bracket will be decided during the open stage. The grand finals will eventually feature 20 teams.

Of the $500,000 total prize pool, the winner will receive $105,000, while the runner-up will receive $75,000 for their efforts. The Apex Legends Major 2 will seed the top four teams.

The following teams have already qualified for the Major 1: North American qualifiers Team SoloMid, Sniper Abusers, Rogue, Team Squidward, and RCO Esports White; European qualifiers Kebabrulla, BDS Esport, OUTSIDER, Natus Vincere, and Virtus.pro; South American qualifiers CPTL eSports and INTZ; Korean qualifiers Aura Esports and _4K; Japanese qualifiers SCARZ White and Nora-Rengo; Greater Southeast Asian qualifier MiTH Team 1; Oceanic qualifier EXO Clan; and Middle East and African qualifier Istanbul Wild Cats.
