There’s exciting potential times ahead for Leicester with ESL UK hoping to use the Haymarket Theatre there, for eSport events. An eSport arena in that area would be a great boost in terms of jobs and the general UK esport.
Talks are currently underway and ESL hope to grab the 800-seater esports arena if a £3m deal is confirmed. ESL are based in Lecister which should give them a leg up when it comes to negotiations. It has already used Curve Theatre for events, like the Season 2 ESL UK Premiership League of Legends finals.
ESL UK is based in Leicester, and hosts events from its ESL Studio 1 facility. It has used the Curve Theatre for some events in the past, such as the Season 2 ESL UK Premiership League of Legends finals. We love a story that includes mutual support to and from the various sides of the eSport world.
