After two months of Online Challenges and three of the Global Series, the final round of the 2021 MotoGP™ eSport Championship is here, and it’s live from the season ending #ValenciaGP!
A total of 22 gamers (16 from Europe, 6 from the Rest of the World category) 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. Those 11 hail from all around the world – creating an incredibly strong Global Series entry list.

And that is just for starters. An action-packed show that includes the final two races of this year’s series gets underway on Friday 13th at 18:00 Local Time with Immy Barclay hosting the show while Jack Appleyard and Jack Gorst providing the commentary.
A total of four gamers are separated by just 20 points after a season of drama, excitement and surprise. Established names Adriaan_26, Trast73 and AndrewZh have regularly been at the front; new name Piero Ricciuti55_ proved himself a genuine contender, and has a shot at deposing all three former champions. Quite simply this is an event that cannot be missed.
The eleven finalists will take on the highly technical, tricky Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas before attacking the tight, twisty Ricardo Tormo Circuit at Valencia for the season finale!
Friday’s action will be available to watch live via MotoGP™ broadcasters, on motogp.com and esport.motogp.com, and across social media platforms including YouTube (via the MotoGP™ and MotoGP™ eSport channels), MotoGP™ eSport Twitter, Instagram, Facebook (via MotoGP™ and MotoGP™ eSport pages) and Twitch via MotoGP™ and MotoGP™ eSport.
Who will walk away with this year’s MotoGP™ eSport crown? Be sure to watch on Friday 12 November at 18:00 (GMT+2) to find out!
