Gfinity Elite Series Australia hits 2 million views in debut season

June 28, 2018

The first four weeks of the Gfinity Elite Series Australia has wrapped up, touted as the ‘Big Bash’ of esports, and now with some numbers to back it up. Statistics from the first month of the debut season of the Series show that views on its Twitch channel exceeded 2 million, with more than 7 million minutes of content watched on the platform.

“We promised an elite level of play, and a national competition featuring great games. At the mid point in the first season, we’re thrilled with the product, and fans are loving it” says Dominic Remond, Gfinity Esports Australia’s CEO. “Our audience, which totals in the tens of thousands each week, is clearly impressed with the level of talent shown from the six clubs”.

The Series has also been the first city-based league in the country, and the first to broadcast Rocket League on national television on ONE, reaching a cumulative reach of over 950,000 on the channel.

“At the midpoint of competition, we had a top four separated by only a single victory, and big personalities driving interest on social media. Experiences within cricket and the Big Bash League demonstrate that Australian fans love to get behind key players, whether they are playing for or against their team. Live sports now also means esports, available on your phone, console, PC, and TV. We’re proud to be part of the next wave of national sporting product in Australia” added Remond.

One week of the regular season remains before two weeks of finals, and you can catch up on the action on the official Twitch channel, or the Rocket League broadcast on ONE from 10AM-1PM AEST on Sundays.
