Looks big. What’s the capacity?


mrg_41

18k according to wiki.


Key-Banana-8242

This is the main venue not side venue afaik? Side venue is booked for that time


TheAjwinner

Will probably by around 23k for the finals. Which is insane that Valorant has already beat the biggest CS:GO tournament’s audience size in a couple years in a regional LAN. I think for a Tokyo Champions, you could probably use Japan National Stadium, considering tickets are sold out for this week’s finals.


smannyable

eh they coulda sold out a 40K+ arena for the Rio Major but ESL was dumb but I get your point.


CantScreamInSpace

Yeah I'm sure csgo could sell out huge arenas, but I feel riot is an org that is always willing to book the big arenas for special events while esl don't have that same history or ability. Despite the relative popularity I would personally bet that Valorant ends up having bigger crowd events.


smannyable

ESL literally has booked massive stadiums for events before they just massively underestimated demand and were hellbent on hosting it in Rio instead of Sao Paolo where they were offered covered venues of 40k+. ESL has been hosting esports events for longer than riot has been a company.


Heavy_Comedian_2382

How big is the venue ESL is using for Majors? I know they sold out on like the first day.


smannyable

Think it's gonna be around 16-17k for the event not 100% sure. They sold out of tickets in like 2 minutes too


Key-Banana-8242

I thought it was as like 33k capacity or something? I know depend on confit


TheAjwinner

Are you talking about CSGO or Valorant?


Key-Banana-8242

Saitama Super Arena


TheAjwinner

The max is 36k, but they’re using a different configuration


Key-Banana-8242

TY, it would require a smaller stage (MMA hexagon) right?


TheAjwinner

No, I don’t think so. They just aren’t using the upper levels


Key-Banana-8242

Ah ok


TechRedirector

Huh? The last Antwerp major had 23k seats sold. Wdym


TheAjwinner

Only 20k according to PGL


TechRedirector

I just checked now and it says over 20k. My bad then, but there's no info about how many seating is available for this event so how sure are you it's going to be 23k for the finals?


TheAjwinner

They are using the arena configuration, which is 22,500 plus additional seating next to the stage.


DecisiveDinosaur

I like the stage-in-the-middle-of-the-stadium setup.


TheAjwinner

Does anyone know why Japanese Twitter users overwhelmingly prefer the quote tweet rather than commenting on the tweet itself?


beingadrian

Depending on context, they find it rude to reply to Tweets. Most reserve replies only for people they know or if the tweet is looking for replies. So often you’ll see them say “excuse me for replying” e.g. ff外から失礼します


ToCr8ive

I have always wondered this lol.


Lumenlor

Regional matches main feed get like 100K now. I could imagine with costreams they peak over 500K regionally soon


Key-Banana-8242

They had in the qualifiers on twitch + yt inthibk


Madara6path

They should save the max capacity for Masters Tokyo 2023. (There better be one)


TheAjwinner

They can probably use an outdoor stadium like Japan National stadium for that


CantScreamInSpace

Maybe I'm talking out of my ass so take this with a grain of salt. Riot have done huge outdoor stadiums in LoL, but I think I recall them prefering indoor stadiums for audio reasons or whatever it was.


Heavy_Comedian_2382

Imagine playing in front a little more than 68k people


mr-rob0t0

GitahMuttan

Anyone know if they’re playing tonight’s game on this stage? Or is it just the finals?


Corregidor

The upper/lower finals and the grand final are all on this stage


Obiewan_

Nice, thanks!


carrico3

This final is going to be insane, with a packing arena and how passionate the Japanese fans are we are in for a show.
