All six city-based teams took part over the weekend, including Sydney Roar, Sydney Chiefs, Melbourne Avant, Melbourne Order, Perth Ground Zero and Brisbane Deceptors. In a packed arena, fans experienced the launch of Australia’s first national esports league in person, with 240 seats being filled. They were joined by a peak viewership of almost 5,000 online during CS:GO broadcasts on Saturday.
The series first Rocket League matches were aired on the Ten Network’s channel ONE over three hour’s on Sunday morning. Figures are yet to be released around this.
