TORONTO/OTTAWA, ON, CANADA, October 5, 2021 / -- Amuka Esports, Canada’s leader in gaming venues, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Carlingwood Shopping Centre (“Carlingwood”) to bring an esports and gaming venue to the enclosed shopping centre in Ottawa, Ontario.

The 2,500 sq.ft. location, equipped with 20 state-of-the art PCs, consoles, and mobile gaming stations as well as dedicated streaming zones, will open at Carlingwood in Q4 2021. This location will also host various esports tournaments organized by local operators in Ottawa.

“We have wanted to open a location in Ottawa for several years, and now with Carlingwood Shopping Centre as a partner, we can create an amazing esports experience for Ottawa’s gaming community,” according to Ben Feferman, CEO of Amuka Esports.

With the reemergence of retail, the team at Carlingwood has been working vigorously to create experiences within the centre that will connect the community post pandemic and attract a variety of demographic groups. Introducing an esports and gaming venue will complement the other engagement-focused amenities launching at the centre over the remainder of the year.

Newly managed by Strathallen Property Management Inc. (“Strathallen”), there is potential for Carlingwood to be the first of several other esports and gaming venues at Strathallen-managed properties. Amuka Esports also operates venues in Toronto and Windsor and is expanding to Florida in 2022.
