Esports Insider says: The UK is becoming increasingly known for its enthusiasm when it comes to esports, but it’s the southern parts of the country that are considered hotspots. Having an esports bar – which is becoming a more and more popular type of venue – in the North can only be a good thing, and it’s nice to see Cooler Master get involved in a hands-on capacity.
