300 and counting: Danish teen sets mental FIFA mark

Too young to go pro, 14-year-old Anders Vejrgang set a new world record by winning 300 FIFA games in a row 

Danish eSport phenom Anders Vejrgang might only be 14, but he’s accomplished something quite remarkable.

On Sunday night, the teen from Hjørring won his 300th Fifa Ultimate Team victory in a row, setting a new world record. 

It was the tenth weekend on the trot that Vejrgang beat all 30 of his opponents. 

Hundreds of thousands of viewers tuned in to watch the record being set, and ‘real’ football stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe gave him congratulatory thumbs up.

Vejrgang’s Instagram profile has skyrocketed from 15,000 to over 240,000 followers in recent weeks.

Well on his way
Vejrgang is widely regarded as being one of the top FIFA gamers on the planet. 

But he’ll have to wait a couple of years to officially be able to assume that title. 

Rules state that you must be at least 16 to participate in the biggest FIFA tournaments – such as the World Championships.

But it looks like he’s well on his way to winning that as well. He’s played the current world champ twice … and won both times.
