A new 6,000-seat eSports arena is under construction in Shanghai for Edward Gaming (EDG), a professional eSports organization based in China. The arena, which will be part of a larger entertainment venue, will be located in Shanghai’s Minhang District.

The Shanghai International NCC&Esports Center will provide office space and be the home arena for EDG. It will also include an eSports-themed hotel, an indoor skydiving center, a driving range, and a breakdancing venue. When completed the center is expected to be able to host up to 10,000 visitors a day.
