This weekend marks the kick off for the second season for the Gfinity Elite Series Season 2, and will lead many weeks of fierce competition. This season, those watching along will also be able to catch updates from the series on the radio and more.
Fans will now be able to catch every game of Season 2 across a range of platforms, including Twitch, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. Broadcasting to multiple channels will give fans the opportunity to tune in their way to cheer for their favourite club across the season.
The first matchup of the weekend will set the tone for the entire season, as interstate rivals both fight for the bragging rights of a week one win. With new rosters, gameplay between the clubs will be shaken up as Melbourne ORDER attempts to prove they have what it takes to make it all the way once again. Supporters for both clubs will be able to view the interstate action starting at 3:00pm AEDT Saturday November 3 with Counter Strike kicking things off for the season.
“During the first season we partnered with Twitch in ANZ to reach over 2.4 million unique viewers,” said Dominic Remond, CEO of Gfinity Esports Australia. “You’ll still find Season 2 on Twitch, but we’re sharing our broadcast across more platforms than ever, so fans can always get their fix, no matter what channel they feel at home using”.
The Gfinity Elite Series Australia will also be returning live to Network Ten, this time broadcast on Eleven. Rocket League fans will be able to tune in on Sunday mornings at 11:00am to watch clubs battle it out each week. Catch up video on demand will then be available via TenPlay for any fans that miss out on the action.
“We want to be sharing esports with as many people as possible, and the partnership with Network Ten helped give new audiences a taste of what esports is all about” said Dominic Remond. “This partnership will continue to give Eleven’s viewers the opportunity to engage with esports in an accessible and entertaining way”.
Expanding outside of video content for the league, Radio stations on the ARN network will be sharing news and updates about the league in over 1800 radio spots Australia wide. They will air on KIIS, The Edge, 97.3FM, 96FM and online at iHeartRadio, further expanding the reach of Australia’s first city-based esports league.
