Esports community and education 

At the opening, the visitors learned more about the esports ambitions of Breda and BUas. The goal is to create a gaming and esports facility where the community feels welcome to meet and play. 
BUas offers a specialisation in Sports & Esports and a fourth-year minor in Esports Event and Media Management. 

During the event, visitors had the opportunity to play games against and with each other, beat the pro, watch a showcase game, and learn more about the dynamic world of esports. 

The esports industry is a serious worldwide growing business. The HIVE gives the community a chance to learn more about this industry in a professional way, together with national and international partners.
