Newcastle United Foundation Unveils NUCASTLE Community Hub With Esports Room

Newcastle United Foundation, the official charity arm of Premier League club Newcastle United, has officially opened its community hub NUCASTLE, which features a variety of wellness and education facilities as well as esports room, which was set up in collaboration with UK-based computer manufacturer YOYOTECH. The facility is now open seven days a week, combining its community space with the facilities. This includes activity and cycling studios, a specialist STEM room, a four-court sports hall, changing areas, event and meeting spaces, as well as offices and the esports room.

“Yoyotech has been instrumental in the set up of our brand new esports room,” said Andrew Foster, Program Manager for Newcastle United Foundation. “The team has supported us through designing, building and installing the PC hardware and furniture for the room as well as sourcing the software to allow us to manage the room safely and efficiently. They have helped us navigate setting up this room with limited technical knowledge and have ensured we understand the options available to us in a manner that we can use to make informed decisions.”

This isn’t Newcastle’s first involvement within the esports space. Alongside the football club participating in FIFA’s ePremier League, the Newcastle United Foundation launched an interactive esports program for students of Newcastle College. 

Earlier this month, YOYOTECH also secured a partnership with British esports organization Excel Esports.
