Grand Finals for Gfinity Elite Series Australia Set for this Weekend


Six weeks after it began, the Grand Finals for the inaugural Gfinity Elite Series Australia are set to wrap up the successful season. The league, which is the first esports league in Australia to be both a national competition and city-based following the ‘Big Bash’ model, has so far attracted nearly 2.9 million views on Twitch, and more than 12.5 million minutes watched across the past six weeks.

Four teams have made it into the Grand Finals – with Melbourne ORDER playing in all three streams of the league. ORDER will face Perth Ground Zero in Street Fighter V, the Sydney Chiefs i CS:GO and Melbourne Avant in Rocket League. The finals will play across both Saturday and Sunday this weekend, with the CS:GO final at 3PM AEST Saturday 14 July, and the Rocket League final at 10AM AEST and the SFV final at 4 PM AEST on Sunday 15 July.

Speaking about ORDER’s enviable position, Dominic Remond, Gfinity Esports Australia’s CEO said, “Melbourne is arguably the sporting capital of Australia, and Melbourne Order has delivered consistent high level teams across all three titles. Counter Strike: Global Offensive is likely to be hotly contested in their match up against Sydney Chiefs, the classic inter-city rivalry, followed by a Melbourne Derby final against Melbourne Avant in Rocket League on Sunday.”

However, the team will face stiff competition from each of the remaining teams, especially from Melbourne Avant’s Rocket League team, comprised entirely of draftees from the Gfinity Esports Challenger Series.
