Features & Facilities
The Gaming Stadium has a a 130 seat arena, as well as a gaming centre with 48 other high powered gaming PCs available for the public and LAN events.
The Arena itself has a really nice urban aesthetic with a bare-bones stage setup and concrete floor which is slightly reminiscent of some Tekken, Counter Strike and Rainbow Six levels.
Everyone loves LEDs but it’s nice to see an arena take a less-is-more approach to lights and props.
The Gaming Stadium was first annouced in 2018, led by Dan Cybak, the then CEO of MyeSports Ventures Ltd.
It then opened it doors June 28th 2019, with it’s ‘Grand Opening’ event. With the aim of building a the local community of Esports enthusiasts, The Gaming Stadium then launched a flurry of weekly open/public Esports tournaments for games including Dota 2, Rocket League, Hearthstone, League of Legends
Sadly, the momentum ground to a halt during the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020, as it was forced to close its doors to the public just 9 months after it launched. However the pandemic wasn’t enough to stop the merger of the stadium’s owner MyeSports Ventures Ltd. and Brockton Ventures to form TGS Esports Inc, which was then launched on the TSX Venture Exchange August 2020.
With things starting to get back to normality in 2021, expectations are high for what exciting events The Gaming Stadium can put on in 2021/2022.
As well as a bar/cafe, you can also check out some of the merch The Gaming Stadium has to offer including t-shirts, key chains and LED ornaments.
A lot of the events held at this arena are free but you need to register for them. A full list of their events can be found here, where you can buy/register for tickets.
