Within recent weeks, a lot has happened for UCI eSports. Alongside Zot Zone renovations and preparing the grand opening of the eSports arena, we have been considering all the equipment that’ll be implemented inside the arena. So with that, we’d like to announce our newest partnership with Vertagear!

Vertagear is a gaming chair company that commits to bringing innovative features to all of their products. We have finalized agreements with Vertagear and they have created a custom UCI gaming chair that’ll be featured with every PC station.
