Esports returning to Las Vegas

9 May 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- UMG Media Corp. (UMG) is thrilled to bring competitive gaming for the first time to the World Series of Poker (WSOP) starting 29 May 2018 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. The World Series of Poker attracts over 250,000 people to the event for the 50 days it runs. And for the first time poker players and spectators will be able to participate in and compete in a variety of gaming titles including Fortnite, Hearthstone, and FIFA along with other popular titles on the UMG Esports Stage, which will be located on the stage of the main tournament poker room, the Pavilion Room in the Rio Convention Center.

“Last year we watched our initiative to grow esports in Las Vegas grow by leaps and bounds,” explains Dave Antony, CEO at UMG. Antony continues, “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.”

The UMG App will be available for download in both the Apple Store and Google Play prior to the beginning of the WSOP event, and we encourage all players and spectators to download the app prior to attending the event.

To see how the UMG Esports Stage will work, along with the UMG application integration, check out this video.

The UMG Esports Stage will feature games in multiple genres playable on both Xbox One and PC. The area will be open everyday of the WSOP tournament. The full schedule of special events at the UMG Esports Stage will be posted online and directly on the app prior to the commencement of the tournament and will be constantly updated during the tournament.

The WSOP is the longest-running, largest, richest and most prestigious gaming event in the world, dating back 48 years to 1970, and having paid more than $2.6 billion in total prize money to date. This year’s event promises bring a diverse group of players from all over the world over the course of the 50 day event.
