MotoGP™ eSport Championship Semi-Final 2: where to watch

Broadcasters and online streaming services bring you all the action from the final decider on who goes through

It's almost time for the last chance saloon to get into the Grand Final of the 2018 MotoGP™ eSport Championship: Semi-Final 2. Qualifying players from Challenges 5 – 8 are gearing up for the battle and action gets underway in Madrid from 19:00 (GMT +1) on Tuesday.

The MotoGP™ eSport Championship is bigger and better than before in 2018, with even more challenges at even more tracks. This year there are two Semi-Final events – the first one that took place at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, and the second and final shot for the hopefuls that’s about to light up the Movistar eSports Center in Madrid. Once we have our final graduates decided in this Semi-Final, it will all go down to the Grand Final at Valencia alongside the season closer for MotoGP™ with plenty of incredible prizes to play for – including a BMW M240i!

The first players who move through from Semi-Final 1 are CRISTIANMM17, ANDREWZH, LUIGI48GP, TIMOTHYMCGARDEN61, ADRIAAN_26 and ELEGHOST555. 12 more gamers from the UK, Italy, Spain and Indonesia are now ready to fight it out to join them, with six places still up for grabs. Some are returners, however, after some big drama hit the first showdown – with reigning Champion, Italian TRASTEVERE73, one of those still looking to graduate and continue to fight to defend the crown. They’ll be competing on Intel-powered Lenovo Legion PCs, and the six final places in the Grand Final will be decided. The programme will last an hour, with a qualifying session of ten minutes before the lights go out for the ten lap race.

So where can you watch? There will be extensive TV and digital coverage of the showdown, with Movistar MotoGP and Movistar eSports for Spain - and Movistar eSports will also show the Semi-Final on YouTube. Fox Sports Australia and Sky New Zealand - the latter on SKY Sport channels and online platforms SkyGO and Fanpass - provide coverage in Oceania, beIN Sports in the US and Canada and ESPN will broadcast across Latin America with the exception of Brazil. It's all on OSN in the Middle East & North Africa, Sport 5 in Israel and Fox Sports in Asia. Sony broadcast in India on their SonyLIV platform, and MTV3 will broadcast in Finland on both their Digital Platforms and TV. 

Digital streaming will also provide coverage across the world, with and both showing the event – as well as the YouTube accounts of both MotoGP™ and the MotoGP™ eSport Championship. Digital coverage is further augmented via Twitter, Facebook and Twitch.
