Comfort first!

The player experience if always our main focus. For this edition, we want to offer more space to tournaments and will double the size of the player zone compared to last year. Players will then be able to enjoy the competition with a maximum of comfort.

Last year, the Saturday was difficult because of the network, and this is not going to happen again. Numerous efforts and investments have been made by the Congress Center to ensure the best conditions to the event and its players. The event will be able to rely on a dedicated 10Gb optical fiber with a brand-new core of network. By security, a second optical fiber of 10Gb will also be set up if ever the first one would encounter any problem. Lyon e-Sport wants to thanks the Congress Center for their efforts and is impatient to enjoy this place once again.

A true esport show

High level matches and animations on different stages will once again set the pace of the event. Fortnite will get a nice part of the program, and League of Legends’ fans will be amazed to find the best French teams once again. More than ever, teams will rely on your support to find their way to victory.

The main stage of the Congress Center will host animations all week-end long, starting with the opening evening on Friday. Esport, rivalries, emotions and fun are to be expected! We will give more details very soon.
