Farming Simulator League, the official esports series of agricultural simulation franchise Farming Simulator, will make its UK debut in 2024.
The league’s fifth tournament of the season will take place during LAMMA 2024, the UK’s largest farm machinery show in January 2024.
The Farming Simulator League is an annual competition in Farming Simulator. The League is now in its fifth season and consists of several online and offline tournaments that award points for the season-ending World Championship.
The LAMMA event will be an official tournament stop in 2024, meaning that FSL teams will compete for both cash prizes and points in the overall standings. This is the first time that the Farming Simulator League is holding an event in the UK. Still, it goes with the game developer GIANTS Software’s intentions of using agricultural fairs and trade shows to showcase the game to a wide audience of all ages.
Boris Stefan, Head of Publishing at GIANTS Software, commented: “Farming Simulator is about growth – and with our attendance at LAMMA, we continue to cultivate our international presence and even put new seeds into the soil by expanding the Farming Simulator League. We’re very happy and look forward to meeting new interested farmers and players in the UK.”
Representatives of agricultural brands Krone and Case, Craig Bryson and Neil Macer, expressed excitement for the upcoming event, noting that the game’s appearance at the show helps visitors better visualise the machinery in action. Case also announced that equipment presented at LAMMA will make its way into the game shortly after.
Details about prize pools were not officially disclosed, but considering the fact that most FSL LAN events have prize pools of around £13,000, it is expected that the LAMMA event will be similar in scale and prizes.
