The Gfinity Australia Elite Series is a professional esports tournament, held in our Sydney Arena before a live studio and broadcast audience, where 6 professional teams compete over 7 weeks for championship titles and prize money.
Joining these teams will be a selection of the best up-and-coming gamers drafted from the Challenger Series.
The Gfinity Australia Challenger Series caters from esports beginners to those on the verge of going pro. It is a competitive gaming series that anyone in ANZ can enter, regardless of skill or experience. Participants compete against each other to accumulate G-points, a ranking system that at the end of the Challenger Series will see the Top 20 - 25 players on the leaderboards become eligible for the Elite Series Draft, and one step closer to their professional dream.
As well as these all-important G-points, competitors can also earn cash prizes with $15,000 in prize money available every month across the three titles.
With Rocket League, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Street Fighter V, there is a game for everyone! All that’s left is for you to pick which cup:
Contender Cups: Perfect for new players trying their hand at esports competition for the first time or want to train their skills further before heading up to the next level.
Competitor Cups: Bigger cash prizes, and more G-points on offer, the Competitor Cup is where the competition is at as these players vie for the chance to win the top prizes and be drafted into the Elite Series.
