A player from every team in Spain's top football division will be battling it out in a massive online Fifa 20 tournament.

With Spain in lockdown because of the coronavirus, players from teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have a lot of time on their hands.

So now they've come up with a way to stay competitive and give fans something to watch.

The tournament starts on Friday 20 March, with the draw based on a club's current standing in the real-life league.

That means teams currently sitting 1-12 in the table will get a bye, going through to the next round on Friday without having to play anyone else.

Meanwhile teams currently in positions 13-20 will play each other to determine the best four out of them.

The final of the tournament will be held on Sunday.

Sergi Roberto will step up for Barcelona, and Marcus Llorente is playing for Atletico Madrid - two weeks after his goals took his side through to the next round of the Champions League in real life!

Manchester United fans might remember Adnan Januzaj. The forward will be Real Sociedad's representative.

It's hoped that people will donate money, and that money can then be used to help tackle coronavirus.
