The cross over between Poker and Esports fans goes deep. (I’m a prime example) Capitalizing on that, UMG Gaming and the World Series of Poker have partnered to bring a dedicated Esports stage to the 2018 WSOP Circuit.
Starting May 29th at the Rio Convention Center, UMG’s Esports Stage will be located in the middle of the WSOP floor hosting open events via games such as FIFA, Madden, Fortnite and Hearthstone. Event sign ups, updates and brackets will be done through the UMG App releasing at the start of the event. (available directly from the iOS or Android App Stores)
“Last year we watched our initiative to grow esports in Las Vegas grow by leaps and bounds. Bringing the UMG Esports Stage into the World Series of Poker events is an amazing next step in continuing this initiative into 2018 and beyond. UMG will utilize its ground breaking event management app to help organize the event and to constantly update participants of upcoming play and special events at the UMG stage.” – UMG CEO Dave Antony
