MLG is building a gaming arena in China

0

Betting big on the future of eSports

Major League Gaming, Lai Fung Holdings Limited, and eSun Holdings Limited are constructing a competitive gaming arena in China, scheduled to open to the public in 2017.

The structure will be located off the coast of Macau within "the V-Zone, the first-in-the-world videogame destination planned as a centerpiece of Lai Fung's Renminbi 18 billion 'Creative Culture City' development on Hengqin Island." (This sounds like a front for a supervillain or something.) The V-Zone will also be home to gaming-themed restaurants, retail shops, creative spaces, and an expo area for game developers.

Tournaments held at the arena are going to be streamed exclusively through MLG.tv, as one would expect. The company says it will "welcome our fans 365 days per year" and calls the development "yet another step in our plan to make eSports and MLG a part of mainstream worldwide culture."
