TRELLEBORG WINS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IN FARMING SIMULATOR LEAGUE SEASON 4

The esports harvest is in: Trelleborg is the winning team in Farming Simulator League (FSL) Season 4 after a furious weekend full of adrenaline-pumping baling! GIANTS Software, developer and publisher of the globally acclaimed Farming Simulator brand, organized the FSL World Championship with the top eight teams attending at its Erlangen (Germany) office and congratulates the Trelleborg team as former and new World Champion in FSL Season 4.

15 Matches to Glory
Trelleborg ruled its group phase on Saturday already, qualifying directly as winner in group A for the semi-finals. Team astragon (who won the final participant match vs Corteva Agriscience), mYinsanity and Bednar had their chances in the lower bracket in this group, where Czech agricultural team Bednar put through for another spot in the Sunday semi-finals.

The French players of team New Holland dominated Group B and progressed to semi-finals leaving Valtra, Lindner and DJK Ehenfeld behind. Valtra followed via the second chance lower bracket and in the end rewarded itself for the 3rd place in the World Championship – moving up significantly from 7th rank at the end of the qualifying phase.


Trelleborg Team on Fire
Claiming five tournament victories in the fourth FSL season, as well as reigning team champions in the second and third season, Trelleborg was the clear favorite in the World Championship 2022. Team captain Lukas Thiemann aka Wühler and his four team-mates started with big confidence, two substitutes and the ability to adjust strategies depending on opponents and circumstances.

Trelleborg’s winning streak wasn’t flawless, as New Holland and Valtra could at least claim victory in one round each of their Best of 5 and Best of 3 matches respectively. But those couldn’t stop Trelleborg’s overall victory and after 16 tournament hours on two days they proudly represent the World Championship winners of Season 4! As a total reward within this FSL Season 4, Trelleborg accumulated a share of 42,000 from the total prize pool of 100,000 Euros.

Farming Meets Esports
“It’s been a blast – the only on-site event in this season was as worthy setting for this World Championship”, summarizes Claas Eilermann, Event & Esports Manager at GIANTS Software. “Congratulations to team Trelleborg for a well-deserved win! Thanks again to all attendees, sponsors and partners for this exciting conclusion of Season 4. Our preparations for the future of farming esports start now!” GIANTS Software will reveal the next steps in its agricultural esports universe in 2023.

The free to download Tournament Client invites every Farming Simulator fan and esports enthusiast to register and compete in the league. The esports game mode is currently based on the PC version of Farming Simulator 19 and requires teamwork to expertly harvest wheat, produce bales and quickly deliver them to a barn.
