Geek Fam has qualified for ESL One Hamburg 2019 after a clean sweep victory over Sterling Global Dragons (SGD) in the Grand Finals of the South East Asian Qualifier.

Geek Fam came into the SEA qualifier as strong favourites to win it and join TNC Predator as SEA representatives at ESL One Hamburg 2019.

Earlier yesterday, Geek Fam went through the gauntlet in their opening match, against BOOM Esports. In a closely contested series, Geek Fam came out on top after triumphing 2-1 to book a place in the winner bracket finals against SGD.

Their next victory over SGD in the winner bracket finals was far more convincing. They dominated both games right from the early game and showed us that they were genuinely a top team in the SEA region with some phenomenal shot-calling and individual displays of skills.

The Grand finals was a rematch of Geek Fam’s match against SGD in the winner bracket final, with the latter triumphing against BOOM Esports in the lower bracket finals. Coming into the series with a 1-0 lead, thanks to their victory in the winner bracket finals, Geek Fam continued their streak against SGD easily securing two back-to-back victories to book a berth at Hamburg.

Geek Fam joins Virtus.Pro, ViCi Gaming, TNC Predator and Gambit Esports as the teams who have already confirmed their presence at the tournament. They will be joined by the winners of the North American, European and Chinese Qualifiers which will come to a close later today, as well as four other teams who'll be directly invited to the tournament.

The tournament kicks off on 25th October 2019.
