Farming meets e-sports: At the end of Season 4, GIANTS Software is organizing the world championship in the Farming Simulator League (FSL) and invites the participants to the Erlangen studio.
The decisive tournament will be streamed on November 19th and 20th on the official GIANTS Software Twitch channel, on FSL YouTube and Facebook from 10 am CET. Live commentary in German and English will bring the thrilling atmosphere home to viewers as participating teams go face-to-face for the first time this season to secure their share of the €100,000 total prize pool.
Unexpected twist: A new challenger
The participating teams in the FSL consist of an illustrious mix of agricultural manufacturers, esports organizations and farming simulator enthusiasts. On this occasion, GIANTS Software welcomes New Holland as another team sponsor: they are now supporting the French group called Fermiers Flamboyants, who achieved a spectacular performance in the league by breaking the winning streak of Team Trelleborg in the fifth online tournament.
Battle for the last contender
Teams of three players each accumulated ranking points throughout the season to qualify for the World Championship by placing. Leading team Trelleborg earned the advantage to start the final competitions against the team ranked 8th on the leaderboard. That final spot for the finals is still vacant as astragon and Corteva Agriscience have had identical results throughout the season and currently share eighth place. They will go head-to-head on Friday night at 6pm BST to determine the missing FSL World Championship competitor.
The final competition
The final competitions start on Saturday with a group phase, which ends in a winner’s and loser’s round. The group winners are directly seeded for Sunday’s semi-finals, while the runners-up qualify via a second chance. This tournament structure forgives a loss in the group stage and gives another chance to reach the semi-finals in the World Cup.
On Sunday, GIANTS Software will crown the winner of the final as the new FSL World Champion!
