The E-League is back! The third edition of the E-sports competition launched earlier this morning down in Sydney after a successful first two seasons.
The competition is being revamped in 2020 with a brand new format that will have only three match days at live events before finals.
The Roar will be represented by returning player Dylan (AussieFifaHD) and newcomer Ryan (NaylorAU) for his first time as a Brisbane Roar E-League player.
Dylan returns to the Roar for his second consecutive season after taking the Roar to a second-placed finish in 2019.
AussieFifaHD is ready to take on a new season and tackle new challenges tapping into his experience in the evolving competition.
“It was my first season last year and I was a bit shaken up in the first round but found myself at home and did quite well coming second overall in the whole season so I’m looking forward to season three,” he said.
“It’s a shorter season which means more games on the same day and I think it’s going to be a lot more pressure on a lot of the players.
“It’s hard enough playing two games on the same day let alone five or six but I’m ready for the pressure and keen to see how we go in season three.”
NaylorAU battled through the XP Esports Australia E-League Qualification Tournament last week, earning the opportunity to represent the Roar in his first E-League season in a tight playoff final.
Ryan is excited to be a part of the Roar family and is eager to get his maiden E-League campaign underway.
“I’ve been looking forward to joining the Brisbane Roar in the E-League,” he said.
“I’ve been trying to grind up and I’m thankful for the opportunity.”
The revamped E-League kicks off on February 15th at ESL Studios in Sydney.
