Welsh Gaming Network collaborates with Cardiff’s Belong by GAME
I am extremely pleased to announce our collaboration deal with the always popular Belong Arena situated in Cardiff’s St Davids 2 Centre.
We have had a close relationship with Belong ever since our attendance at the opening day, with popular Welsh streamers and Welsh Gaming Network members alike making use of the facilities organising meet ups, charity events and taking part in Belong’s Cardiff Saints eSports team.
Since that opening day, Belong has seen much progress, and many regard it as a major hub for competitive grassroots competitions in Cardiff and South Wales, especially with its easy to find location along side the Disney Shop and Hamleys Toy Shop in the shopping centre.
The staff have a great vision for the Belong Arena, including adding more powerful PCs which are seen as a bigger competitive scene than console gaming. On release, there were 12 PCs and we scrambled to take turns to use them, now there are 18 with a further 6 planned to be added.
Currently they are having an advertising drive looking to get more streamers involved at the Arena, and the Cardiff Saints are preparing for their summer Arena Clashes which involve Belong teams from across the UK.
Where do we fit in on all this?
As part of our effort to become a major gaming community hub for Wales, this collaboration means we can share with you local Cardiff based Welsh esports talent and community events they are putting on weekly. In return we will have a monthly meet up at Belong, completely free to any members who attend.
The first monthly meetup will start on Sunday 8th of July 2018 at 4PM til 8PM and is COMPLETELY FREE ENTRY/USE OF MACHINES. Everyone is welcome, and feel free to bring your kids if you think they would be interested in a relaxed Sunday evening of video games and fun.
Due to the size of the arena, it is first come first served up to a total of 24 members before we have to turn you away, so turn up early!!
This will be a great way to learn the faces behind the names, network among the stream team and allow you to put your thoughts and feelings of the Welsh Gaming Network to the staff.
