    eSports are all the rage at the moment and long-suffering Aussie fans are finally getting mainstream recognition, with a swathe of new professional competitions set to launch in 2018.

    Amongst these new offerings is UK outfit Gfinity, who are set to launch a local city-based competition pitting the best Australian talent against each other. Promising slick TV production and big cash prizes, the competition looks like one set to shake up the Aussie eSports scene.

    But it’s not just fancy TV sets and thick wads of cash which will change the local landscape. Gfinity have invested in quality leadership, bringing in Dominic Redmond from the Sydney Sixers, of the highly successful Big Bash League to run the show. Anyone with a passing interest in competitive sport during our summers would know the success of domestic cricket can’t be ignored, so this is a huge win for the credibility of the league.

    The league is also acutely focused on creating genuine paths to professional status for Aussie gamers, investing in a Challenger Series, an open competition where players of any level can enter and compete.

    There’s never been a better time for aspiring competitive gamers in this country. The talent is out there and Gfinity will find them. Join the conversation in our video below;

    Note: Gfinity Australia is a joint venture with HT&E Events. The Roar is published by Conversant Media, which is owned by HT&E.
