Australia just landed its first high-performance centre for esports
Australia has opened its very first Esports High-Performance Centre in Sydney, a new home base for Oceania’s leading League of Legends team, the LG Dire Wolves. Australia's competitive presence on the international scene is developing, with the LG Dire Wolves becoming the first Australian team to compete at the League of Legends world championships in Beijing's Olympic Stadium earlier in 2017.
"Our OPL (Oceanic Pro League) teams have all grown a lot in the last past 12 months, but as far as dedicated training facilities like this, no other teams in the region have anything that comes close," he said. "It's really the first time that an esports team has partnered up with a traditional sporting body such as the SCG."
Plus, sharing is caring. International and domestic teams are invited to work with the facility and its technology too, when visiting the city.
