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.

The project will include solar panels on the roof, a green roof garden, and a rainwater recycling system for irrigating the abundant landscape areas. The plants located throughout will help to provide fresh air and regulate temperature.
The NCC&Esports Center is slated for completion at some point in 2024.
