From July 7th until September 3rd, The Elite Series, will take place every weekend in London at the Gfinity Esports Arena, the home of UK esports. Fans will be able to catch all the action on GfinityEsports.com and can follow this intensive nine week schedule:
o Fridays: Street Fighter V – 6:00pm – 10:00pm
o Saturdays: CS:GO 10:00am – 10:00pm
o Sundays: Rocket League 12:00pm – 6:00pm
The Elite Series season one starts with the regular Season, during which eight teams – with a total of 160 players – will play seven crucial matches. There will be three independent leagues – one for each game: Street Fighter V, CS:GO and Rocket League. After each team has had their one-time face off against the others, the top four will progress to the league’s playoff spots.
Playoffs will feature two semi-finals, with the winners ultimately meeting head to head in a final showdown for their share of the £225,000 prize fund and the glory of being crowned the Elite Series League Champion.
In addition to the three independent leagues for each game, Gfinity will, for the first time in esports history, be running a franchise championship, for the overall winners across the entire tournament.
