Microsoft, Activision, EA, Xbox, Gillette and HP are among the brands already working with Gfinity.
Method are such an exciting addition for us to add to our Elite Series line up. They bring not only huge talent from their players but they share our vision to grow the UK esports scene and take it to the next level. They are also one of the most watched teams on Twitch.tv, so we’re excited to open up the world of Gfinity to their huge fan base too. -Neville Upton, CEO, Gfinity plc
As the seventh team to be announced by Gfinity for the Elite Series, Method will begin competition in July against other world-class organizations such as exceL eSports, Reason Gaming, Prophecy, Team Infused, Team Endpoint and Team EnVyUs. The final team is due to be announced promptly.
Over the next few weeks we will be looking to set up strong teams for CS:GO, Rocket League and Street Fighter V. This is an exciting time for everyone at Method and I hope our fans and supporters will be happy to watch us develop into the UK esports scene. -Scott “Sco” McMillan, Team founder and co-owner
