Some of the LANs up North can be a pain to get to for us Southerners (yes Birmingham counts as the North to us!), so we’ve decided to host our own social event in London.
Esports News UK’s very first event is a London meet-up for ENUK readers, players, coaches, casters, managers and community members in the UK esports scene.
It takes place on Saturday April 8th at Stratford’s Secret Weapon gaming-themed pub from 5pm. It’s easy to get to – it’s a short walk from Stratford train station, and there’s a great pizza place nearby (the pub are cool with us bringing pizza into the premises).
There’s a focus on League of Legends but the event is open to players and people in other games too, including CSGO, Hearthstone, Overwatch and everything else. It’s open to all, basically.
Sign up to the event here – there are 100 tickets available on a first-come first-served basis
“We’ll have some League of Legends-themed drinks and systems set up for some 1v1 action. We hope to see you there!”
We’re delighted to announce that the meet-up is officially part of this year’s London Games Festival Fringe series of events.
So whatever your ability, get together for some drinks with friends, teammates and other players.
We’ll have some League of Legends-themed drinks and systems set up for some 1v1 action.
So be sure to come down to Loading’s Secret Weapon gaming-related pub in Stratford for a chilled out evening of fun and networking.
We hope to see you there!
