Where to watch MotoGP™ eSport Global Series Round 3

Join Jack Appleyard & Jack Gorst across a wide selection of channels platforms for the third round of the 2021 MotoGP™ eSport Global Series

After a new, expanded Pro Draft and the first two rounds of the season, the MotoGP™ eSport Championship Global Series resumes today for the third round of 2021.

The slickly produced format of the dramatic Global Series showdowns – aired by a wide range of broadcasters across the globe – resulted in MotoGP™’s version of eSport being nominated for the prestigious Sports Technology Awards in 2020, in the ‘Use of Esports by a Sports Brand’ category.






Global Series: Misano qualifying

So how did we get here? A total of 25 gamers (16 from Europe, 6 from the Rest of the World and the winners from the 3 Regional Finals in last year’s Rising Stars series) 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. The 11 hail from all around the world, and each rider was selected after some stellar time-attack performances in the Online Challenges – creating an incredibly strong Global Series entry list.

Presenters Jack Appleyard and Jack Gorst will host the hour-long show, which will begin with highlights of qualifying before the 11 riders take on two races. The first one will be held on at the riders’ favourite Phillip Island track with its spectacular seaside setting in Australia and the second one will be at the technical Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. The riders will be playing on the new official MotoGP™21 Videogame from videogame developer, publisher and longstanding partner Milestone – which is available to buy now – with race direction and the event powered by Lenovo PCs. The points system for Round 1 will mirror the MotoGP™ World Championship, with 25 points for a win. 

Fans can watch on motogp.com and esport.motogp.com, on selected TV broadcasters, and across social media platforms including YouTube (via the MotoGP™ and MotoGP™ eSport channels), MotoGP™ eSport TwitterInstagram, Facebook (via MotoGP™ and MotoGP™ eSport pages) and Twitch via MotoGP™ and MotoGP™ eSport.

Who will stake their claim for this year’s MotoGP™ eSport crown?  Be sure to watch on Friday 24th September at 16:00 (GMT+2) to find out!
