Gfinity Australia prepares to launch "the Big Bash League of Esports" June 2nd

Gfinity Esports Australia has finalised their roster of local players who’ll compete in the inaugural Gfinity Elite Series Australia ahead of a June debut.

As part of the new esports event, 56 amateur players competing in the Gfinity Australia Challenger Series were drafted into one of six local teams: Perth Ground Zero, Sydney Roar, Melbourne Order, Brisbane Deceptors, Sydney Chiefs and Melbourne Avant.

“We’re proud to be providing opportunities for some of the most talented gamers in Australia to pull on a team jersey and represent the people of Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. The Gfinity Elite Series Australia is about combining the experience of supporting your home town club, with the incredible passion Australians have for playing games competitively at the highest level,” said Dominic Remond, Gfinity Esports Australia’s CEO.

Proclaiming itself the ‘Big Bash League’ of Australian esports, Gfinity Esports Australia will bring see the six city-based clubs compete in front of fans and broadcast live at the Gfinity Hoyts Esports Arena in Sydney over seven weeks.

Each of the 56 players in the league will be competing in one of three games: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Rocket League, and Street Fighter 

“Aussies love a good underdog story and the Challenger series has allowed plenty of these dark horse players to rise through the ranks and make a name for themselves.” said Dominic Remond.

“Traditional sports such as cricket have always fostered young and amateur players as a way of scouting future talent, and we feel this model translates perfectly to esports.”

The series' debut match is set to take place on June 2nd at Sydney's Gfinity Hoyts Esports Arena.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
