Belong Gaming Arenas is tapping into the move to digital operations by starting to host virtual tournaments from today on Battlefy. The free-to-enter tournaments have been provided to keep the gaming community together whilst we are all encouraged to #stayhomesavelives – and are another example of how the Coronavirus lockdown is driving the rapid rise of esports.
Belong is the home of grassroots esports in the UK and have a large and dedicated community of players across the country. With physical arenas closed Belong are pleased to take their tournaments online for the first time. These tournaments will not only be open to existing community members but also to gamers all over the UK.
Players will battle it out all over the country with winners walking away with prize pools from £75 to £190. Streams of selected matches will be available to watch on twitch.tv/belongarenas with casters adding their professional touch to the commentary.
Currently the roster sees all tournaments taking place between 6pm-10pm. Players must be 16 or over, live in the UK and must have a Battlefy account and GAME Reward card.
Belong will also be hosting some online activities for younger gamers over the coming weeks with details to be announced soon.
