eSports is on the grow. It doesn’t look like it’s going to stop anytime soon. Now an eSports area is currently being built in the UK and the new images of what it is going to look like are purely insane.
The design is a huge sphere that you will sit inside of. It is currently designed by Populous and will hold 18,000 people. It will be hosting both music and eSports events for the Madison Square Garden Company.
To make it more interesting the exterior of the sphere will be covered in digital screens to host advertisements covering the outside and on the inside, you’ll not be able to see this. MSG currently mentions that this will be the “largest and highest resolution media display on Earth”. Scary times where technology is taking us. Reminds me something from Blade Runner.
Now the main focus here is around eSports being on the rise and this goes to show how far eSports currently is right now.
“MSG Sphere London is a natural fit for events such as esports, where audiences will be able to participate in the competition and interact with each other,” said a statement from MSG. “It represents an important milestone in the company’s vision to redefine live entertainment through iconic venues that will feature game-changing technologies and pioneer the next generation of transformative, immersive experiences.”
Right now it’s currently in the stage of being designed and planning permission will be expected by the end of 2018.
Now for me personally, this looks incredible. If the designs that art is shown is anything to go by, this is possibly the best eSports arena in the world.
