How can I watch the Gfinity Elite Series Finals?
The big question is: can I watch the Gfinity Series Finals? Thankfully, fans of the Gfinity Series have two options; head along to the finals in London, or watch from the comfort of your own home. We outline both below.
If you’re local to London and want to head along and watch the series finals in person, the good news is that you can – and it won’t cost you a penny, either. Fans that want to travel to the arena in Fulham Broadway can do so, all you need to do is head to the Gfinity Eventbrite page and pick up tickets for the game finals.
But for the thousands of fans that aren’t local to London that want to follow the action as it happens, there’s another option available. Gfinity has announced that all the finals, from this evening until tomorrow night, will be livestreamed not only via the Gfinity Facebook page, but the Gfinity website too.
