Commencing this month and encompassing Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Rocket League and Street Fighter V, the Gfinity Australia Series kicks off with its inaugural Challenger Series. Where anyone can put their skills to the test starting January 7. With pre-season commencing right now, two Elite Seasons are also on the cards for 2018, comprising of professional teams representing each Australian city.
Here's a handy video detailing it all. With the awesome part of course being amateurs from the Challenger Series being eligible to compete and be drafted into the Elite Series.
"The Challenger Series is designed as an integrated, grassroots support platform, which is frequently seen in traditional sports, and is key to the development of Australian esports," said Gfinity Australia CEO, Dominic Remond. "Gfinity Australia provides a clear pathway from amateur to professional, to secure a place in Australia’s newest esports franchises, and be part of the biggest league to launch in Australia."
The structure of the competition follows the successful model employed by Gfinity in the UK, with the goal of this series to become the ‘Big Bash League of esports’.
