One of the biggest esports names in Europe, Epsilon Esports, have been added to the Gfinity Elite Series.
They are the eighth and final team to join the Elite Series, some two months after the first few UK teams were confirmed.
Epsilon have been confirmed after Method were added this week.
The final eight teams in the Gfinity Elite Series are as follows:
- Epsilon Esports
- exceL eSports
- Reason Gaming
- Team Infused
- Team Endpoint
- Team EnVyUs
They will take part in the Gfinity Elite Series which kicks off on July 7th, and includes Street Fighter V, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Rocket League.
Belgium-based Epsilon launched in 2008 and made a name for themselves in games including CSGO and Call of Duty.
“We are extremely excited to get underway with the Elite Series. It is an incredible opportunity for us to develop the next wave of talented esports athletes and grow the profile of Epsilon Esports globally.”
Gregory Champagne, Epsilon
It may have taken a while to finalise the eight teams, and the Elite Series has been delayed, but it’s great to see big names in here like Epsilon and EnVyUs alongside some of the UK’s top orgs.
Gregory Champagne, owner of Epsilon, said: “We are extremely excited to get underway with the Elite Series. It is an incredible opportunity for us to develop the next wave of talented esports athletes and grow the profile of Epsilon Esports globally.”
Neville Upton, CEO at Gfinity, added: “The organisation brings some exceptionally talented players to the tournament and highlights the credentials of the Elite Series in our inaugural season.
“We’re now looking to July where we will be able to finally bring this thrilling spectacle to audiences across the world and teams like Epsilon eSports are a huge part of what will make this special.”
