The Gfinity Elite Series Australia, presented by Alienware just wrapped up the season 2 finals, ending a hugely successful first year for the series. While all eyes on were on Melbourne Order, who took our two of the three titles, they now turn to the Gfinity Challenger Series which will kick off the 2019 season.
Dominic Remond CEO at Gfinity Esports Australia is incredibly proud of what the Gfinity Elite Series achieved in its first year, “Across two seasons we’ve been able to work with both the established and grassroot esports scenes locally, and help foster the fast-growing Australian communities for three titles.”
Not only was the series’ a success with dedicated fans, the 2018 Elite Series’ was broadcast on free-to-air TV on 10 Peach (previously Eleven), along with online platforms, including Mixer. “Every year more people are interested in esports, with more players and viewers than ever tuning in on their platform of choice,” says Remond.
The Gfinity Challenger Series will kick off the 2019 season, with players given the chance to test their skills in regular competition, earning prizes and a spot in the 2019 Elite Series draft. A similar system was used and saw players drafted into clubs such as the Melbourne ORDER and Sydney Chiefs. Registration for the Challenger series is now open.
“Through the Challenger Series we hope to see Australia’s next homegrown talent rise, maybe even giving back-to-back club championship winners, Melbourne ORDER, a run for their money in 2019!” said Dominic Remond.
