Gfinity recently expanded in to the CSGO scene hosting their first tournament in the UK this year.
Now they have announced that they will create an eSports arena in the UK capital.
We thought that eSports needed its own home in the UK, so we decided to create one. Based in London, our brand new eSports arena will be a hub of competitive gaming activity, hosting live events, delivering exclusive content and allowing you, the fan, to witness it first-hand. With space for up to 500 spectators, we want YOU to come and see the heart-pounding, adrenaline-fuelled action up close and personal and over the course of the next year, you’ll be able to do just that. Tickets will be available for every arena event, more details will be released soon.
Along with this the UK brand will be running 30 offline LAN events in multiple games between March and September. The season will culminate in the Gfinity Championship 2015 LAN that will take place at one of the biggest arenas in the UK, marking the event as Europe’s largest multi-title eSports event of all time.
They also said:
We’re committing over $500,000 in prize money for the Gfinity 2015 calendar of events; that’s three times as much as 2014!
This will all be split across multiple different games and will not just be for CSGO.
A full breakdown of the event schedule, including dates and prizepools will be available soon.
