Trelleborg wins Farming Simulator League Season 2 Finals

Erlangen, Germany – GIANTS Software proudly announces the victors of the second Season of the Farming Simulator League: Renowned global engineering group Trelleborg, most famous for their diverse wheel systems and license partner for the Farming Simulator series, made 1st place in the final tournament this Sunday.


From the prize pool consisting of 100.000 Euros, split between the eight finalists, more than a third was awarded to the winning team of Trelleborg. Composed of the well-coordinated Rablix, Luk4s and Seimän, Team Trelleborg prevailed in the matches against VK, BG powered by Stark and, in the final match, against Team GRIMME. Both teams appeared very satisfied with their performance in the final match that saw the players, casters and spectators on the verge of their seats.


“We had a great season,” said Felix “Rablix” Hasenberger, team captain of Trelleborg. “Not only did we play a lot of tournaments, we also made a lot of friends and acquaintances along the way. Standing here today and holding the trophy is the icing on the cake of an incredible year. We are proud and overjoyed to be the first world champion.”


While Trelleborg was without a doubt the title contender and a feared dominator of the season, they needed to go the full length in the best of five final after trailing behind their opponents two times. Their victory in the final minutes of the decisive match ensured that the duel for the trophy became most thrilling end to the season.


“It was an incredible year for the FSL. When we started the season last year we had big goals and even bigger dreams for the league,” stated Christian Ammann, CEO of GIANTS Software GmbH after the final. “Today we stand here and crown the first world champion and we are proud that the league has been able to establish itself in the esports environment. We are looking forward to the coming season and many exciting games.”
