Gfinity has announced that Rocket League will be the third and final game to be a part of its Challenger and Elite Series competitions.
Rocket League joins Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Street Fighter V as the games for the competition.
With all three games now know the Challenger Series can now get underway, with sign ups now open. Over the next five weeks players will compete for G-Points, with the top players being invited to the Elite Draft, where pro teams will sign at least two players from each game to their rosters.
These teams will then compete over 10 weeks at the Gfinity arena in London, with all teams competing in all games every week. The total prize pool for each Elite Series season will be over £100,000.
The first season of the Elite Series runs from May 26th and ends on 30th July. Another season will then follow.
“Gfinity has always been about the gamers and the signing of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Street Fighter V and Rocket League will guarantee the very best action and entertainment for those playing and watching the Elite Series,” said Neville Upton, CEO at Gfinity. “There is tremendous, world-class competitive gaming talent in the UK, and the Gfinity Elite Series is going to provide the platform for this talent to showcase their skills to the world. We want more gamers playing harder and better at the top level to showcase new home-grown talent to existing pro teams and ultimately pave the way for more UK pro teams being formed that can go on and compete at global events. The Gfinity Elite Series brings world-class-level competition to the UK and is set to be the pinnacle eSports event in the UK.”
