Gfinity Esports Australia has announced that every match during Season 1 of the 2018 Gfinity Elite Series Australia will be broadcast online exclusively on the social video service Twitch.

Commencing this weekend, the Gfinity Elite Series Australia is bringing a new standard of quality to Australian esports, with six city-based clubs facing off across seven weeks of live league action. This first-of-its-kind partnership with Twitch in Australia ensures that Australian esports fans, both new and old, will have the best experience on the home of live esports: Twitch.

Starting 3pm Saturday 2 June with CS:GO, then continuing Sunday 3 June at 10am and 4 pm with Rocket League and Streetfighter V respectively, esports fans across the country will be able to watch the Gfinity Elite Series Australia live on every week, with dedicated viewers barracking, rejoicing and commiserating as a community on Twitch chat for each match.
