They went on to confirm that more information regarding the new game mode will be revealed in the near future.

GIANTS Software also confirmed they are teaming up with a variety of sponsors such as Intel, Logitech G, and Nitrado. Based on the press release, there will be 10 tournaments. Winning these tournaments will grant competitors with circuit points along with 100.000€ in prizes. The entire prize pool for season 2 of the Farming Simulator Championship is set at a whopping 250.000€ making the esports league a worthwhile endeavor for European fans of Farming Simulator 19.
