The Gfinity Australia Challenger Series is an open competition where players of any level can enter and compete. Build your player profile, climb the rankings and, if you’re skilled enough, join the pro players in the Gfinity Australia Elite Series.

To join the pros, the top-ranked competitors from the Challenger Series will be placed in the Gfinity Australia Elite Draft. Here, professional teams will draft the best players to join their Elite Series rosters who will compete live on stage at the Gfinity Australia Arena.

The Gfinity Australia Elite Series brings together Australia’s best players as 6 iconic, city-based teams battle it out over 7-weeks of live competition at the Gfinity Australia Arena.

Competing across multiple game titles, these teams will compete to determine which team, and which city, will be Gfinity Australia’s ultimate Champions.

After a successful year in the scene with our staff, players and partners, we’re looking forward to what 2019 will hold.

Through the Challenger Series we hope to see Australia’s next home grown talent rise, maybe even giving back-to-back club championship winners, Melbourne ORDER, a run for their money in 2019!
