Gfinity announces last three clubs participating in the Elite Series
Australia's first city-based esports league has filled its roster.
This June, Australia's first national, city-based esports league will begin. Kicking things off at the first of many converted Hoyts cinemas at Moore Park, the Gfinity Elite Series will see six teams face off in a variety of competitive games, including Rocket League, Street Fighter V and CS: GO.
Today, the last three teams were announced for the Elite Series, filling out the six-team lineup. Joining the ranks are Perth Ground Zero, Brisbane Deceptors and Sydney Roar. These three teams join the already announced Melbourne Avant, Melbourne ORDER and Sydney Chiefs. It's a shame there's no representation for our friends in Adelaide, Hobart, Canberra or Darwin but hopefully, as the sport grows, we'll see more and more clubs pop up over the country.
On the announcement, Gfinity Spots CEO Dominic Redmond said, "Sydney and Melbourne are arguably the most prominent sporting cities in Australia, but we know how fervent Western Australians and Queenslanders are when it comes to their local sporting clubs. Gfinity Esports Australia is about presenting a national competition for esports fans and players, and we’re proud to offer Perth and Brisbane based fans their own clubs to support come June.”
