Team Endpoint join the Elite Series
Endpoint, a rising star in UK and global eSports scene, will join the likes of exceL eSports, Reason Gaming, Prophecy and Team Infused as our home-grown talent, alongside global powerhouse Team EnVyUs.
The Gfinity Elite Series will see each eSports organisation field teams for Rocket League, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Street Fighter V in what is set to be the UK’s showpiece eSports tournament, delivering intense action and unrivalled entertainment at London’s Gfinity Arena.
For the past six months, Endpoint has been primarily focused on Counter Strike: Global Offensive, one of the key games in the Gfinity Elite Series. The CS:GO Endpoint team have been flying the flag for the UK in a number of international tournaments such as ESEA Premier Division, WCA China and Copenhagen Games.
Neville Upton, CEO, Gfinity plc, said, “The addition of Endpoint to the Gfinity Elite Series is hugely significant as it supports our quest to back UK talent and will make the competition even more exciting for everyone involved. Their expertise and standing, even as a relatively young team in eSports shows that we are serious about our intention to take eSports in the UK to the next level. We are passionate about investing in home-grown players and teams and the Gfinity Elite Series is a fast-paced and thrilling way for us to do this.”
Adam ‘Adz’ Jessop, CEO Endpoint Esports Ltd said: “It's an honour to be invited to compete within the Gfinity Elite Series. Since returning to the UK eSports scene and founding Endpoint, the progression and opportunities within the UK have been rapidly evolving and I believe that the Gfinity Elite Series marks the next big step in that evolution. We have been working hard to position ourselves at the top of the UK scene whilst also embracing the community wherever possible, and we are proud to be able to continue that work as one of the 8 Elite Series franchises. Competing within such a prestigious competition will help us continue our rapid growth, whilst enabling us and our partners to reach a wider audience.”
