After two months of Online Challenges, the season opener of the Global Series kicks off this week, the centrepiece of the highly successful MotoGP™ eSport Championship.
Eleven finalists have been chosen by the MotoGP™ teams as their competitors in the Global Series, a four-round championship with ten races and, new for 2023, four Tissot Sprints!

And that is just for starters. An action-packed show that includes the first races of this year’s series gets underway on Friday 25th at 16:00 (GMT+2) with Kiko Giles and Jack Gorst presenting and commentating.
While former champions Adriaan_26 and Trast73 are among the favourites to add another crown to their tally, this year’s Global Series line up boasts six new faces that are keen to shake up the existing order. Six nationalities are represented, with the finalists hailing from the UK, Indonesia, Italy, Spain, Germany and Malaysia.
The Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello is the venue for the first Sprint in Global Series history, before the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya and the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli host race one and two respectively.
