PC seller Eclipse Computers has opened its brand new Eclipse Arena LAN gaming centre – and a UK CSGO tournament is in the works.
The centre, located at 106 Saint Nicholas Street, Coventry, CV1 4BT, features a LAN Hall with 20 systems, an upstairs chill out room and a sound proof shoutcasting chamber for casters to stream matches live on Twitch.
Available games include League of Legends, CSGO, DOTA 2, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone and Minecraft.
It will be open most weekends from 11am to 11pm, and costs £2 per hour, £5 for three hours or all-day for £10.
The Arena relaunched earlier this month with a free gaming day for visitors.
More will be added to the venue in the near future, including LED striplights, posters and decorations, plus a drinks machine.
Next month, the Arena plans to host a CSGO tournament. The competition is scheduled to run on Saturday May 28th and Sunday May 29th.
A headline sponsor is being sought out to fund a £1,000 prize pool.
More tournaments will be held at the Eclipse Arena in the future, with the games and prizes depending on sponsors.
Each of the 20 systems at the Eclipse Arena boast an AMD FX 8350s processor, 16GB Crucial Tracer memory and an AMD R9380X graphics card.
For those interested in Eclipse Arena sponsorship, you can contact Tom Villiers.
