Video: Could the UK have an esports ‘stadium of the future’?

A new esports 'stadium of the future' concept design has emerged, with a demonstration video showing off what it's capable of.

Design firm Populous showed off the stadium idea at SXSW Austin. It features a transforming stadium that can adapt depending on the number of visitors, with huge screens and interactive media sections.

The design features a 'gaming village' outside the arena, and an interactive media plaza with bars, social areas and outdoor screens.

Inside, there's a tunnel that displays imagery and video on it, giving visitors a close-up look at game moments and their favourite teams.

 

"Only a handful of esports-specific venues currently exist and none currently have the live event hosting capability of a full-size arena."

 

The main area has a flat screen in the middle with various projections protruding from it.

There's also a training facility and other sophisticated-looking bars and food areas inside.

Then there's premium seating with haptic feedback and a tablet screen, which displays match stats and info live to the spectator.

"Only a handful of esports-specific venues currently exist and none currently have the live event hosting capability of a full-size arena," said Brian Mirakian, principal and director of Populous Activate.
