Gfinity has announced today the launch of their brand new ‘Gfinity Elite Series’ tournament. The Elite Series will launch in the United Kingdom, but it is meant to expand internationally to create the ‘Gfinity eSports World Series.’
The tournament will offer the UK gaming community the unique chance to compete in a league in which anyone can play, regardless of skill level. The tournament will support skill levels from grass roots, all the way to professionals.
To qualify, gamers will need to play in order to gain ranking points in the Gfinity Challenger Series, which is scheduled to begin during January 2017. The top competitors will qualify for the Gfinity Elite Draft, where professional teams will draft players to play among them in the Gfinity Elite Series.
The Gfinity Elite Series itself will launch in April 2017 and will feature some of the best esports players in the world competing for the title of Gfinity Elite Series UK Champions. The tournament’s matches will be hosted at the UK’s only Gfinity Arena in London.
