The GCS Grand Finale was a thrilling competition that had spectators and participants on the edge of their seats till the final whistle blew and crowned Saransh Jain the champion. The best FIFA 18 players in the country duked it out in matches that were incredibly close and nerve-wracking to prove their skill and to win the grand prize of Rs 50,000. They say football is a gentleman’s game played by hooligans but the only hooliganism going on here was the banter between the players that livened things up, however, at the end of the day, it was good sportsmanship between them that prevailed.
The winner of the finale, Saransh Jain beat Charanjot Singh, a 15-year-old from Chandigarh, in an extremely close match that could’ve gone either way. In the end, it was Saransh’s clinical finishing that edged him over the finish line. Charanjot while only being 15 years old went toe to toe with some of the best in the nation and nearly came out at the top. He goes back home with Rs 20,000 and has proved that when it comes to eSports, it’s skill that matters and not age.
