Gfinity eSports has rounded out its six team roster with the announcement that three new teams are joining the upcoming Gfinity Elite Series competition.
Perth Ground Zero will - no surprises here - represent Western Australia, while the Sydney Roar and Brisbane Deceptors will be repping hard for their states. Ground Zero is an independent eSports organisation, while the latter two are wholly owned by Gfinity Esports Australia.
“Having more professional teams on board is a testament that gaming, as an occupation, is happening and gamers can realise their aspirations to go professional just like any conventional sport. This season, fans can expect an exciting gameplay where some of Australia’s best esports players demonstrate the mastery of gaming skills they have spent hours developing and perfecting. The city-based structure, taken from traditional sports, also introduces great city contests and we’re sure Australians will find a team they can get behind,” Ben Jackson, General Manager, Consumer & Small Business, Dell, Australia and New Zealand, in this week's announcement.
They join Melbourne Avant Gaming, Melbourne Order, and the Sydney Chiefs. All six teams will be battling it out from June 2 at the Gfinity Hoyts Esports Arena in Sydney's Moore Park. They'll be playing an eclectic mix of games, too - Counter-Strike, Rocket League, and Street Fighter.
