Riot Games, a major California-based video game developer, has unveiled its new League of Legends exclusive stadium called “Lol Park.”
The new facility is located at Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea, and can host up to 500 people, who sit in a circular arena surrounding a central stage where professional players duke it out live on games.
Due to the audience’s seats being in close proximity with the stage, the fans are able to better experience the excitement around the action, which is also screened on giant LED screens. The screens allow quality entertainment regardless of being at the front or back of the stage.
Other facilities include coach and commentary boxes and an player interview zone for post-match interviews.
Lee Seung Hyun, the representative of Riot Games Korea, said in a launch statement, “I only hope that LoL Park can provide a unique experience. The League focused stadium is more of an arena style than a studio. I have made sure and prepared this place to be a pleasant space for players. In addition, I did my best to set up various attractions and comfortable facilities for the audience who might visit here.”
