Where to watch Round 1 of the Global Series

The slickly produced format of the dramatic Global Series showdowns – aired by 16 broadcasters across the globe –resulted in MotoGP™’s version of eSport being nominated for the prestigious Sports Technology Awards in 2020, in the ‘Use of Esports by a Sports Brand’ category.

So how did we get here? A total of 25 gamers (16 from Europe, 6 from the Rest of the World and the winners from the 3 Regional Finals in last year’s WINDTRE Rising Stars series) were entered into the Draft Selection phase, with that then whittled down to the 11 riders who have been chosen by the MotoGP™ teams as their competitors in the Global Series. The 11 hail from Australia, the UK, Indonesia, Italy and Spain, and each rider was selected after some stellar time-attack performances in the Online Challenges – creating an incredibly strong Global Series entry list.
