Sporting Kansas City's Alekzandur fell to eventual champion George Adamou of the New York Red Bulls in eMLS Cup 2020 presented by Coca-Cola and PlayStation on Sunday.

Alekzandur had booked his spot in the marquee EA SPORTS FIFA competition by virtue of his strong performances in eMLS League Series One and Two earlier this year. His 3-0 knockout round loss to Adamou was a boost for the Red Bulls' eMLS player, who went on to defeat New York City FC's Didychrislito 3-2 in the championship to claim the majority of the $20,000 prize pool.

Sunday's championship was the culmination of the 2020 eMLS season that began in January and featured two majors, League Series One and League Series Two, in the lead up to eMLS Cup. League Series One and League Series Two provided eMLS players the opportunity to accumulate points to determine seeding for eMLS Cup. League Series One was held in Philadelphia in partnership with the Union and League Series Two in Portland in partnership with the Timbers.

Alekzandur has served as Sporting’s eMLS player for the 2018 and 2020 campaigns. In April and May, he joined 21-year-old Sporting midfielder Wan Kuzain in the inaugural eMLS Tournament Special, which saw eMLS players team up with MLS professionals for a two-a-side FIFA 20 competition that aired nationally on FS1. Alekzandur and Kuzain fell just short of the tournament championship, finishing in second place behind Atlanta United FC gamer Paulo Neto and defender Franco Escobar.
