Cricket GM to head up new ‘Gfinity Australia’ esports league

THE general manager of Big Bash League side Sydney Sixers has been poached to head up a new esports league.

Dominic Remond has been appointed the chief executive of Gfinity Australia, who are set to kick off the Elite Series, an esports competition with city-based professional franchises.

Dude’s had an interesting career path that’s for sure. From Sony Pictures to Big Bash Cricket and now esports CEO.

The new league kicks off in January launching its “Challenger Series” which invites amateurs to compete for a spot to play against state based pros in its “Elite Series”.

It should be noted that the Gfinity competition is NOT the same one that the Adelaide Crows recently bought into. The Crows instead buying the Sydney based Legacy team competing in League of Legends based Oceanic Pro League (OPL).
