Part of the Game explores the global phenomenon of esports in every corner of the world. In this episode, we bring you the story of the esports capital of Europe: Katowice.

The entire population of Katowice is just 300,000, yet every year since 2013, the city has played host to upwards of 125,000 diehard esports fans, who flood into the Spodek Arena to see the best players in the world compete for esports’ grand prizes.
