The British Esports Federation is about to level up its National Esports Performance Campus in Sunderland. Thanks to the UK government’s Open Networks Ecosystem Competition, the Stadium of Light and the National Esports Performance Campus are in for a serious connectivity makeover.
A substantial £5.7 million in grant funding has been earmarked for these venues as part of the Open Networks Ecosystem Competition, a nationwide initiative aimed at boosting innovation in the UK’s telecommunications sector.
So, what’s the buzz about this project? It’s known as the Sunderland Open Network EcosysTem, or SONET for short. Led by the Sunderland City Council and a consortium of partners, it’s one of the select 19 projects chosen for this initiative.
Enhanced Esports Campus Facilities
The big news here is that the speed and reliability of mobile internet at the Esports Performance Campus are about to take a significant leap forward. This campus boasts an esports competition arena, accommodations for up to 25 individuals, classrooms, practice areas, and all the amenities you’d expect from a top-tier gaming facility.
Both the Stadium of Light (the home of Sunderland FC) and the Campus will soon be equipped with cutting-edge digital features. Think smart venue navigation and more. This could seriously enhance the excitement and interactivity of esports tournaments held at the Campus. And let’s not forget the added bonus of faster web browsing, even during peak usage.
Chester King, CEO of British Esports, couldn’t be more thrilled. He shared, “I’m immensely proud of British Esports and our partners for securing the SONET 5G bid in Sunderland. This signifies a monumental leap forward for our new arena, part of the National Esports Performance Campus. With the power of 5G connectivity, we are poised to redefine the future of live esports and sports experiences.”
King also revealed that the esports arena, set to open its doors in early 2024, will become a hub for cutting-edge technology, offering an ideal environment for growth, engagement, and innovation. So, keep your eyes peeled for what’s brewing in Sunderland – it’s shaping up to be a game-changer for the esports world.
