At the Serbia Pavilion at Expo 2020 in Dubai, Arena Esport and Relog Media, the largest eSports production company in the Balkans, presented a project of opening first Gaming Village in Serbia and the world, which, among other things, will be used for the world’s largest eSports tournaments.
The Gaming Village will include the world’s first 10,000-seat Gaming Arena where gaming tournaments will be held. The Village will have commercial premises, an eSport and Gaming Faculty, an administrative building, a five-star hotel with 300 luxurious rooms, numerous cafés and restaurants, as well as a large wellness centre and an Olympic swimming pool.
Milutin Pećić, founder and CEO of Relog Media, explains how eSports contribute to a country’s economy and why it is important for Serbia to make its mark in this fast-growing sector: “The gaming industry is the second largest industry in the world, right after the arms industry, and global gaming industry earns more than the film and music industries combined.”
In addition to eSports, the Gaming Village will have significant capacity for other sporting competitions, as it will include several indoor facilities with 2,000 seats, basketball, volleyball and handball courts, martial arts and outdoor venues, tennis courts, padel courts and walking trails.
The entire project complies with the highest environmental standards of sustainable construction. Builders will use natural materials such as wood and the facility will feature recycled IT equipment, solar panels and roof gardens, while only electric cars will be allowed entrance to this closed complex.
