    DescriptionA Gold Coast university wants some of its students to spend hours playing video games. But they have a very good reason. Bond University will this weekend unveil their new state-of-the-art competitive video game facility during its annual Open Day on Saturday.

    Expert comments:

    Bond’s Director of eSports James Birt said the program is far from a bludge, and will instead be part of an experience similar to any other part of the elite sporting program.

    “Initially it is about having the facility to enable the high-performance sporting aspect and the ability to train at an elite level,” Mr Brit said.

    “The ultimate goal would be for this to be a hub for high school students to come in and train and be part of the Bond community, be able to use it as an experience and pipeline to show that exports and gaming is a pipeline into higher education.”
