Stockholm E-sport Arena on the rise
Stockholm will soon feature its very own e-sport arena, as Inferno Online is set to finish their most recent expansion by the end of September.
It is the Swedish tabloid rakaka who today brought the story, that Stockholm's E-sport Arena will be ready by the end of September, and the kingpin of the project is the world's largest online gaming center Inferno Online.
Inferno Online back in May received the Guinness World Record for the largest online gaming center, and already back then the talks had started about their next expansion, which would include an e-sport arena.
The latest information given to rakaka is that the arena will be a total of 400 square meters, which means Inferno Online will have a total of 2,000 square meters and more than 400 computers. The arena will specifically be used for tournaments and other e-sports-related events.
