QV Melbourne's Gaming Dome
A free pop-up esports dome with 18 different gaming stations.
Players, are... you... ready? We sure hope so, because this month, QV Melbourne is transforming into a full-blown, state-of-the-art esports gaming hub, and you're all invited along for the ride.
Popping up from Friday, February 28, until Sunday, March 15, the QV Gaming Dome is set to become the ultimate esports playground, complete with 18 gaming stations and a main stage hosting a series of big spectator gaming events. It's being presented in collaboration with renowned Aussie-based esports team The Chiefs, so you can also expect a star-studded lineup of guest appearances.
While you can swing by any day from 12–9pm for a free gaming session, you'll also have the chance to meet, challenge and pick the brains of some of your esports idols, from 1–4pm every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday. We're talking, Brisbane Lions star Mitch Robinson and brother Leigh, Daryl 'Mayker' May and Brandon 'Juves' Defina. At 1pm there'll be fan signings, while 3pm sees the main stage battles erupt, with punters invited to go head-to-head with the professionals. Players will duke it out with games like League of Legends, Fortnite and Rocket League, while the GT Sport stations see speedsters competing to record the fastest hot lap.
Not only will you get to flex your skills in front of the professionals and nab a few autographs, but there are plenty of huge prizes, instant wins and special offers up for grabs, from centre retailers including Harvey Norman, Chunky Town, Spudbar and more. And the best part? It's all free.
QV's Gaming Dome is open from 12–9pm daily.
