· They will compete on the 15th and 16th of December in the Rocket League Final in Gran Canaria

The Rocket League teams of Villarreal and Getafe have managed to earn their way into the finals of the NZXT Challenge organized by Trekza.

Both squads will compete on December 15th and 16th in the final to be held in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The other two classified teams are PIM PAM and Team Borealis.

Villarreal finished second in Group A in the group phase after going three and three in the first and second legs of the competition. This resulted in a tie between the Submarine and Brain Deads, that was broken by the average goals scored in direct competition, a decision that generated some controversy online due to the rules of the tournament not specifying procedures in case of a draw. For its part, Getafe finished the group stage in first in Group B and with a five and one record. Eibar, another team with which Esportia works, just missed qualification into the final.

The club is committed to creating an esports talent pool

SD Eibar has already presented the top three Rocket League players that will compete in its esports section. The club has opted to create a pool of talent with three members of the Rocket league, Clash Royale, and FIFA19 squads. The presentation was made in the previous Basque derby against Alaves in Ipurua.

Adrian ‘Syston‘ Gil, Rafael ‘Zombie‘ Saborido, and Adrian ‘Hadriandus‘ Lozano are the three players that will form the club’s Rocket League squad. All have extensive experience after passing through such teams as eMonekyz, Playmight, and Slayers. Syston took third place in the Gamery 2018 summer event and second in the RedBull 2vs2. Zombie and Hadrianus were second in the Rising Champs League and third in the Golden Master Cup

Eibar will have its own talent pool.

The pool will be formed by three members who left the Ipurua draft at the end of July. Jon ‘Yoda‘ Gartzia will compete in Rocket League and be a substitute for the three leading players; Xuban ‘Xuban10‘ Hoyos will do the same in Clash Royale, while Ibai ‘Guto_12‘ Gutierrez will be the representative in FIFA19. Enrique ‘Kikthai‘ Huerta, a caster for the club’s official Twitch channel (sdeibar_esports), will also join.

The presentation ceremony was held in Ipurua, before the Basque derby match against the ThunderX3Baskonia. Players of both teams competed in Clash Royale and FIFA19, this being the first time that an Euskal-Derbi sees esports competition. With this step, Eibar joins other first division clubs that already have their own esports teams.

The club announced in July that it was going to professionalize its esports section with the help of Esportia. Entering this growing sector allows Eibar to continue expanding its brand internationally and reach other markets, like Asia, directly.

The ThunderX3Baskonia continues with the development of its academy, created to promote video games as a social tool, and advance values linked to traditional sports.
