The world’s first eSports stadium

Posted on: Feb 21, 2018 By smartlaunch in News and trends,

The worlds’s first eSports stadium, Zhongxian stadium lies along the banks of the Yangtze River. The venue seats 7,000 people, and possesses curtain glass walls that feature LED screens, allowing entire portions of the building to transform into enormous video displays for viewers outside the building.

Along with an outdoor plaza, the wings can accommodate an additional 13,000 people on top of those seated in the arena, with LED walls to allow viewers who can’t get in, to view the action as well.

The giant screens separate an e-sports stadium from a traditional one. Jumbotrons are used in traditional sports arenas to display secondary information such as scores and times. In an e-sports stadium, there is nothing to watch but the screen; athletes are in their chairs, virtually motionless. Zhongxian’s arena is centred around huge screens hanging above the centre of the space.

China’s 600 million gamers account for about a quarter of the world’s US$101 billion video game market. The stadium will serve as a breeding ground for new industry talent.
