The Gfinity Australia Elite Series is back with Season 2 announced for November 3rd. Season 2 will see all six clubs returning to the Elite Series with Melbourne ORDER defending all three titles. After the well received feedback and viewership numbers in Season 1, Dominic Remond, Chief Executive Officer for Gfinity Esports Australia is confident the popularity will continue in Season 2.
“Melbourne ORDER’s dominant victory last season has set the tone for Season 2”, said Dominic Remond, Gfinity Esports Australia’s CEO. “We expect to see old rivalries reignited, Melbourne ORDER have a target on their back, and with roster changes across the clubs, fans are in for our most competitive season yet. Aussies love a dark horse, and now we have five.”
The city-based clubs have recently drafted their rosters for Season 2 with more than half of players are draftees; joining rosters of established professional players.
“The Challenger Series injected plenty of new blood into the Australian esports community, and it’s inspiring to see these players returning for Season 2,” said Dominic Remond. “The performance of draftees like Doom and Syo were integral to the performance of their clubs, and their continued involvement speaks volumes to the system we’ve built.”
Like Season 1, all the games will be played live at the HOYTS Gfinity Esports Arena in the Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park Sydney. Tickets for all matches will be available in the coming weeks on their website here. All the live action action will be streamed on Twitch here.
