Huge news reaches us today via our friends over at Noblechairs, that will interest anyone remotely interested in gaming & e-sports in the UK. Red Bull today announces the arrival of the Red Bull Gaming Sphere, an innovative new gaming space in Shoreditch, London.
The public-access studio – the largest in the UK – will act as a hub for the UK’s gaming and esports communities, offering a stunning venue kitted out with state of the art gaming technology and a packed schedule of events.
Partnering with Red Bull in this venture are some of the biggest hitters in the technology space, with both Asus Republic of Gamers, and Noblechairs joining the party.
Speaking of their involvement with the new venue, Steven Levitt of Noblechairs told Play3r; “Working alongside Red Bull as the official gaming chair partner for the London Gaming Sphere is extremely exciting, and I’m looking forward to contributing towards the growth and development of the UK esports scene.”
The Red Bull Gaming Sphere has been designed as a multi-purpose facility, with a modular setup that allows for bespoke configuration to suit any gaming occasion. In addition to participation tournaments, guests will have opportunities to meet and play with their esports heroes through workshops or one-on-one activities, with in-house leaderboards to track challenges to the finest players from around the UK.
The London Gaming Sphere is the second of two new cutting-edge studios that Red Bull is opening, following the recent launch of the Tokyo Gaming Sphere in Japan in February. The unique venues are set to become the home of gaming and esports within their territories, and the Gaming Spheres represent Red Bull’s continued commitment to growing and supporting the gaming and esports communities.
