Hoyts to revitalise business model by turning cinemas into esports arenas

Hoyts and Gfinity will work together to build a chain of broadcast-ready esports arenas within existing Hoyts theatre locations. The idea is that, with these state of the art locations already installed and ready to go, they will be well placed to pull global touring esports events looking for a base in the Oceanic region.

The first location ear-marked is Moore Park in Sydney beginning in the 2nd quarter of 2018 for the inaugural Gfinity Elite Series.

The first of these events spans seven weeks and includes competitions for Counter Srike: GO, Street Fighter V and Rocket League.
