Cumbernauld eSports Centre for Competitive Walking Simulators
Welcome to the new era of Scottish esports.
Funded by the Lambent Institute, the 2021 redevelopment of the Cumbernauld Shopping Centre into the new CeCCWS has transformed the centre into both the UK's largest esports facility and cultural institution. Cumbernauld is set to host the first Walking Simulator World Championship in 2022, cementing the town into the world stage of the esports scene.
The centre boasts a whopping 60 seat esports tournament venue, state of the art gaming equipment, high speed servers, streaming rooms for gaming content creators, and player dorms with sleeping VR functionality. This is to keep players immersed in virtual space for maximum durations. The world class facilities are all housed within the historic post-war megastructure, famously the UK’s first shopping mall, named as Scotland's worst town centre by the Carbuncle Awards and voted “Britain’s most hated building” in 2005.
