Vue Cinema in Fulham to Become eSports Arena
The Vue Cinema in Fulham Broadway, London is set to become the UK’s first dedicated eSports arena in a partnership with gaming tournament organisers Gfinity.
As well as being the only live venue for UK-based tournaments some events will be broadcast globally and vice versa so game fans here will get the opportunity to watch other international contests from their seat in the Gfinity Arena. As well as the competitive gaming aspect, visitors to the Vue cinema will also get an early glimpse at forthcoming games and major events from publishers including Activision, Blizzard and Valve.
The Gfinity arena is set to open at Vue in Fulham in early March ready to kick off the opening leg of this year’s Gfinity Championships where the first game contested will be FIFA 15. The choice of location also positions the arena a stone’s throw from the buzz of central London but the future plan is for Gfinity and Vue to take eSports further afield with cinemas in other UK cities also becoming top gaming locations.
