Allied Esports Opens Second Esports Arena in China

Allied Esports, the world’s leading network of esports venues and content production facilities, has opened its second dedicated esports arena in China, the Allied Esports SEG Arena in Shenzhen. The new arena was built in partnership with e-commerce leader Shenzhen SEG, which will provide strategic support for Allied Esports’ Chinese properties across its network of e-commerce assets.

China is at the forefront of the esports boom with a consumer base that continues to immerse itself in gaming unlike anywhere else in the world. We are thrilled to work with Shenzhen SEG to open a second location in the country, and look forward to collaborating with incredible partners as we expand our property base in Asia.

At nearly 22,000-square-feet, the arena features a multi-use production studio, 168 top-tier gaming stations and an interactive VR experience, and will be a one-stop-shop for large and small-scale productions, including professional and amateur tournaments, as well as casual daily use.

The Shenzhen arena joins Wangyu Esports, which was opened in 2015 in Beijing, in the Asian segment of the Allied Esports Property Network spanning North America, China and Europe.

Our vision is for Allied Esports SEG Arena to be the home of esports in Southern China. With the great partnerships we have announced with SEG and several game publishers this year we plan to bring many great events and productions to Shenzhen in the future.
