Gfinity Elite Series Australia’s Rocket League tournament will be broadcast on free-to-air television on Channel Ten’s ONE.
All Rocket League Gfinity Elite Series Australia matches will be broadcast live on ONE, starting at 10.00 am AEST on Sunday, 3 June. All five weeks of regular play will be broadcast in addition to two weeks of finals. The broadcast will run from 10.00 am to 1.00pm AEST each Sunday of play.
“We are committed to growing esports in this country and promoting a new level of quality entertainment and professional gameplay, so we are very excited to be taking Gfinity Elite Series Australia to a new, free-to-air television audience,” Dominic Remond, CEO of Gfinity Esports Australia said of the partnership.
“Network Ten is one of the leading entertainment companies in Australia, with a long tradition of bringing fun and engaging content to viewers, and we’re thrilled that audiences will be able to tune in to watch the live Rocket League matches each Sunday on ONE.”
There do not appear to be plans to broadcast Street Fighter V or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournaments, though all Gfinity Elite Series Australia matches will be livestreamed via Twitch.
Gfinity Elite Series Australia begins this weekend, 2 June, from Sydney’s Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park, NSW. Stevivor is currently offering readers the chance to win 1 of 5 double passes to the tournament.
