BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)–Video game enthusiasts gathered in Buffalo Sunday for an Esports event. The NHL 20 style tournament was held at Buffalo RiverWorks and sold out.
Hundreds of people attended the day-long tournament. Gamers who participated were able to play on their own console and monitor with the chance to win a prize.
Doug Allen, best known for singing the National Anthem at Sabres games, says he was happy to sing for this hockey-related event.
“There’s a huge gaming community out there and so it’s good to be able to get them together in a public place to get to meet each other and get to know each other, other than just in a dark room somewhere playing video games.”
“Just Dishin” who organized the event, says that the tournament will help create opportunities for players in Western New York.
