Netherlands: How Europe’s tech hubs are pushing esports to the next level

December 2020

Europe’s technology hubs play a pivotal role in expanding the market for esports and associated start-ups and scaleups. However, challenges still exist, as the continent is playing catchup to developments in other markets.

Just outside Amsterdam in the Netherlands, the H2O esports complex recently opened its doors. Its 10,000 square metres include the Rabo Esports Stadium multipurpose arena, esports Gaming Club, and VR esports. Workspaces, desks, and dedicated office areas for esport and gaming-related start-ups and scaleups are also found on the premises.
