600 seat video game arena to open in Fulham this month

Major live video game tournaments are to be screened in Fulham from next month.

Three custom built stages will house over 600 video game fans at Vue Cinema in Fulham Broadway after striking a deal with leading eSports company Gfinity.

Gamers will be able to socialise with friends, get to grips with the latest game releases, grab a sneak peek at forthcoming titles and compete in events at the Gfinity Arena. There will also be the opportunity to watch major events from game designers Activision, Blizzard, Valve, Riot and more.

The 2015 Gfinity Championships will comprise 25 events finishing in September 2015. Live tournaments will be hosted every weekend and on selected weekday evenings, building on the success of last year’s G3, the UK’s biggest ever eSports event, which saw 4,000 spectators visit the Copperbox Arena in London’s Olympic Park.

All of the events will be available to view online at Gfinity.net.
