A group of property developers, Silvertown Partnership, have revealed a plan to develop an arena to house esports competitions and events. The building is set to be 300,000 square feet and will have a complete arena, player lodging, and fan areas–hoping to create an arena that will resemble Rome’s Colosseum.
In East London’s largely known Docklands, where a 62-acre industrial site stands a barren of silent grassy land. Here lies an old grain facility, Silo D where it towers over a flour mill. Currently, this space clearly does not display a welcoming ambiance for esports fans. Yet, Silvertown aims to make this London’s esports hub. When you think of esports, East London is what comes to mind at first. Along with the arena, the property developers want to establish 3,000 homes, office buildings, and restaurants which seems to support the esports arena in the future.
“It will be one big amphitheater, like a mini version of Rome’s Colosseum with boxes all the way around for teams and testing areas.” Ben Reed, a project head for Silvertown said. Although it may not seem like it can host large events, it can hold 2,500 spectators.
London has proven that it can accommodate different esports tournaments and events with its track record. Back in 2014, 12,500 fans filled Wembley Arena to watch League of Legends. Also, Copper Box Arena hosted Gfinity 3 where they could seat 7,500 spectators. Although, another esports-focused facility already exists in London. The Gfinity Arena in West London has picked its location near a shopping center with a warm atmosphere along with a cinema. The problem is, it can only hold 600 people. Silvertown wants to scale this into something bigger.
Ben Reed and Silvertown are still progressing with their goal. Reed aims to bring in promotional opportunities in the arena, too. “Gillette might want to do a brand experience, a six-month occupancy, Red Bull might want to do some events here. And then you’ve got less obvious ones, multi-channel networks need broadcasting studio space. We’re building relationships, we’re shortlisting people, but we can’t close the list because there are so many interesting things happening.” Reed added.
The esports-focused arena is still coming together. But the objective is clear and exciting. A facility with game developers and publishers, media broadcasters, esports team, and brands. This is the future of esports.

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
