Features & Facilities
It has 3 purpose built stages to accommodate a variety of different tournament events, and two large LED screens to broadcast the action to the audience. It also has one of the coolest tunnels in the world for competitors to make their way to the stage. The tunnel is in the shape of a hexagon with extremely cool looking LEDs spread across it.
Gfinity is an Esports company started in 2012 by Neville Upton. After holding several notable Esports events, Gfinity decided that they needed to create their own purpose built Esports arena.
Gfinity would then partner with the Vue Cinema chain in 2015 to create Britain’s first dedicated Esports Arena at a Vue Cinema location in Fulham, London. It seems like a great partnerhsip as Cinemas generally have the space and concessions set up, and Esports can guarentee the big crowds, so i wouldn’t be surprised if we see more Esports arenas pop up at other cinemas around the country.
Since it’s creation the Gfinity Arena has a reputation as the premier purpose built gaming arena in the whole of the UK. While venues like the Copper Box and Royal Opera House hold bigger crowds, there’s nothing quite like a purpose build Esports arena.
While there isn’t a dedicated Esports shop, there is a fully equipped cinema concession stands right before you enter the arena, making the Gfinity arena probably the best catered Esports arena in the world 😀
