SBS have revealed that they’ll be broadcasting the Australian eSports Championship Qualifiers Grand Final on SBS2 on Friday September 2nd at 9:30pm. This is a free-to-air television first in Australia and marks yet another significant milestone in the local eSports scene.
The event will see Australia’s top two Counter Strike: Global offensive teams, SYF Gaming and Athletico battle it out for a spot in October’s 2016 World Championships in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The World Championships will see Australia compete against 35 other titles, over three days. Last year’s Grand Final in Seoul, South Korea attracted 40,000 spectators in a stadium sell-out.
