Staffordshire University have thrown their hat into the Esports ring, with the appropriately, but unimaginatively, named Esports Arena London.
Features & Facilities
This Arena is mainly set up for 5 v 5 competitive games, like Dota 2, League of Legends or Counter-Strike, so has 2 desks next to each other with a total of 10 battle-stations. Behind these desks are several large screens to display the action to the audience.
In front the battle-stations are 60 stools for spectators, though I’d imagine more/better seating could be put in for bigger events. This space also boasts a dedicated commentator table that sites just behind the crowd.
But the best feature about this space is that for broadcasting events worldwide there is a cutting edge setup, with built in lights, cameras (with the action being provided by the players) and even a separate production gallery. It’s ready to stream professional, TV production level, 4k footage at the drop of a hat.
Staffordshire University – London Digital Institute, in partnership with the Here East building at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, opened this Epsorts Arena in 2019.
Staffordshire University London actually offer an Esports Degree. The Digital Institute London Esports Degree is focused on organising and managing modern Esports events. So it only seems logical that’d they’d need their very own Esports arena to train the future organisers/stars of Esports.
A lot of credit should go to this Uni for being at the forefront of Esports education, and for creating one of the best broadcasting Arenas in the country. We hope to see some big Esports tournaments at this place in the future.
