Live stream and professional commentators together with local athletes
Scandinavia’s largest e-sport tournament on console is arranged by SpelArena together with Jönköping municipally in cooperation with Druidz e-Sport Sweden who is responsible for the tournaments. This is a milestone for the Scandinavian console-scene as there is no establishment for supporting or promoting console players in Scandinavia. Plantronics has stepped in to support and promote the console-scene and Consolidate, as Head Sponsor.
”It is wonderful to see that Scandinavia will be a place on the map for organized console gaming as there is no place today where the multitude of console players can unite under the same roof.”
Dennis ’SobriuS’ Söderberg, Team Manager, Druidz e-Sport Sweden
The reason behind this initiative is that the interest for e-sport is large but the commitment between console and PC players is huge as there are but a few working with the console scene. There is a large amount of players but few tournaments so the players are set aside when comparing to PC.
