The world has a defending champion of virtual farming: Publisher and developer GIANTS Software announces Trelleborg as the winner of the Farming Simulator League World Championship. Eight teams competed for a prize pool consisting of 100,000 Euros on Sunday, 5th December, which concluded season three of the Farming Simulator League (FSL).

Thrilling finale of the season
The setup for the finals already promised a nail-biting finale: Trelleborg was the title contender of the season – with two newcomers, Valtra and Corteva Agriscience, close to their backs.

To Trelleborg’s advantage, Corteva Agriscience and Valtra met directly in the first match. A surprise was provided by the wild card team LSA E-Sports, which made it to the final match without a sponsor and as another new team in the FSL. In the decisive match, Trelleborg prevailed after three rounds of victories and can now call itself World Champion.

“We are proud to have defended the title of World Champion!” said Lukas Thiemann (aka Wühler), team captain of Trelleborg. “Since the preliminary round, we have not lost a match, no matter how tough our opponents were. We gave our best and were finally rewarded with a winning streak of 11 wins and can now call ourselves the World Champion of the Farming Simulator League.”

The FSL will continue!
“We congratulate team Trelleborg for this well-deserved victory and the hard-earned trophy. We saw some outstanding strategy and teamwork in the World Finals”, comments Claas Eilermann, Esports Manager at GIANTS Software after the winning team was awarded for their performance. In Season 3, Trelleborg earned 61,300 Euros as part of the overall prize pool.

“It’s hard to believe where the FSL went from the early tournaments up to crowning the victor of this spectacular third season, which has been successfully established in the world of esports”, continues Eilermann. “We are looking forward to the next season, which will be even more exciting!”
