Gfinity Elite Series Australia to be broadcast online exclusively on Twitch

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.

“We are very excited to be partnering with Twitch as the home of the inaugural Gfinity Elite Series Australia,” said Dominic Remond, CEO of Gfinity Esports Australia.

“We know they have a highly engaged audience and are the preferred platform for the esports community in Australia. They will bring the action from the tournament, and the dynamism of our live audience, to the fans at home and those across the country who are unable to attend the events at the arena in Sydney.”

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 twitch.tv/gfinityau every week, with dedicated viewers barracking, rejoicing and commiserating as a community on Twitch chat for each match.

“Esports in Australia and New Zealand is growing at a phenomenal pace. We are happy to be part of the next step in the Gfinity Elite Series Australia,” said Lewis Mitchell, Partnerships Associate for Australia and New Zealand at Twitch.

“Our partnership with Gfinity Esports Australia will bring all viewers together in the one place they feel most at home as they enjoy the competition with other like-minded fans.”

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.
