Plans have been revealed to build Europe's largest esports gaming hub in the Swedish capital Stockholm.

Space Digital Culture Centres (Space) – a Swedish property and entertainments venture set up to create hubs for gaming and music – plans to establish a permanent, 7,500sq m (80,700sq ft) esports venue covering seven floors.

As well as gaming spaces, the hub is set to include music recording studios, co-working spaces and a gym.

Space Stockholm will be fitted with 500 gaming spaces and separate areas for console and VR gaming.

Space expects to attract around 5,000 visitors a day, with customers paying by the hour to use the facilities. The hub is expected to open in early 2021.

Space is headed by co-founders Gustav Käll, Lars Blomberg and Per Sundin.

Käll is the head of esports-focused music label Enter Records, Blomberg is chair of architecture firm DAP Group and Sundin is the chief executive of Pop House Sweden, a company which operates the Pop House hotel at the ABBA museum.

Designed by DAP Group, the gaming hub will be located on Sergels Torg, a public square in the heart of Stockholm.

"In online culture, people are interested in gaming, music, and content creation,” said Gustav Käll.

"They are the three biggest pillars in terms of what the youth enjoy. We want to bring that under one roof.”
