Jonas ‘Jonny’ Wirth Wins the 2024 eChampions League Final

Jonas ‘Jonny’ Wirth has joined the list of eChampions League winners after winning Wednesday’s finals to be crowned the ultimate European champion.

The 18-year-old SC Paderborn 07 player secured victory against Montaxer and Bonanno on his way to the final where he recorded a resounding 5-2 win against Levy ‘Levyfinn’ Rieck.

The finals took place in front of a live audience and Jonny walked away with a whopping $75,000 prize money. He was presented the trophy with the big ears by Ruud Gullit.

This year’s eChampions League final was a repeat of Virtual Bundesliga final played last month where Jonny crushed Levyfinn 8-1.

How Did The Finals Unfold?

Only eight players made it to the 2024 eChampions League finals and fans were up for a thrilling encounter with match-ups like Emre Yilmaz vs ManuBachoore.

These two heavyweights have been at the top level for several years now and their match delivered as expected. Yilmaz, who was the defending champion, managed a 3-2 win in the dramatic clash in which he saved a penalty in the last minutes.

In another quarter-final, Levyfinn showed why he deserved to be in the final by crushing DFernandes 3-1. The Red Bull Leipzig player punished every mistake made by his opponent in their match.

The biggest win recorded in the quarter-final last night was Jonny thrashing Montaxer 4-0. Both players played well but Jonny’s defence was just too solid for the Frenchman to break.

Elsewhere, Bonanno continued with his impressive run this year by stopping DaniPitbull. The ePremier League champion secured a 5-3 win against an opponent who was not willing to back down.

The semi-final saw Bonanno face Jonny and Levyfinn clash with Yilmaz. Whereas Jonny required a late penalty to beat Bonanno 3-2, fellow German Levyfinn showed his attacking brilliance by crushing Yilmaz 6-2.

Fighting not only for the crown but also for the biggest share of the $280,000 prize money, Levyfinn took the lead early on. He played better than in the Virtual Bundesliga final and was leading 2-1 at half-time.

However, Jonny levelled the scores immediately after the break with a header, thanks to Didier Drogba. He then added three more goals while showing his defensive prowess to ensure he secured a comfortable 5-2 win.

With the eChampions League over, all eyes will now be turning to the FC Pro World Championship which is set to take place next month.
