Jonas ‘Jonny’ Wirth Wins 2024 VBL Grand Final

Jonas ‘Jonny’ Wirth is the newly crowned German champion after winning the VBL Grand Final on last Sunday.

The SC Paderborn 07 player beat RB Leipzig’s Levy ‘Levyfinn’ Rieck 8-1 in the final of the offline event, which was played at the Strassenkicker Base in Cologne.

A total of 32 players, including FC Pro Open finalist Anders Vejrgang, took part in the tournament that saw Jonny add another accolade to his trophy cabinet after recently winning the WOW Virtual Bundesliga championship with his Paderborn teammate Jamie “Chaser” Bartel.

Jonny’s triumph on Sunday saw him secure a spot in the first-ever EA Sports FC Pro World Championship which will take place this summer in Riyadh. The 18-year-old also booked his spot in this season’s UEFA eChampions League set to take place next month.

The VBL Grand Final was a two-day tournament that saw 32 of the best EA Sports FC 24 players in Germany battle it out to be crowned the best ‘eFootballer’ in the country. The players qualified via the VBL Club Championship and the VBL Open playoffs.

With the likes of Anders Vejrgang, Umut and DullenMike among those competing, fans following the action were in for a treat. Apart from aiming for the bigger share of the €100,000 prize money, the participants also sought for qualifications spots in the World Championships and the eChampions League.

Besides eventual winner Jonny, the other player who qualified for the World Championships was runner-up Levy ‘Levyfinn’ Rieck.

The two will be joined in the eChampions League by semi-finalists Umut and Marc_ldw23, who reached the semi-finals of the VBL Grand Final.

Vejrgang was knocked out in the quarter-finals by Levy and even though he will miss the eChampions League, he will be at the FC Pro World Championship having finished as runner-up at the FC Pro Open.
