eSports is set to join forces with the World Series of Poker (WSOP) in the coming weeks.

The Pavillion Room will play center stage for the UMG Esports Stage.

“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,” said UMG CEO Dave Anthony.

The company believes the synergies are definitely there and it also helps that the event will take place in Las Vegas where the Luxor is home to a 30,000-square-foot arena dedicated exclusively to hosting competitive esports events.

"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,” Antony said.
