Sauber Motorsport has unveiled a dedicated esports facility that will host all its esports activities, including for the Alfa Romeo Formula One esports team.

Situated within the team's headquarters in Hinwil, Switzerland, esports partners Fanatec and Playseat supplied the team with all the equipment required for the facility.

Via a partnership with Socios, Sauber fans have also been able to have their say on the name of the new facility using voting rights acquired via digital tokens to settle on the 'Sauber Esports Arena'.

“We are thrilled to unveil the Sauber Esports Arena, a further step in the development of the team’s esports programme, as well as a confirmation of our commitment to keep playing a leading role in the esports scene,” said Frédéric Vasseur, Alfa Romeo team principal.

“With the series gaining more and more recognition and attracting new fans, we are delighted to give our talented esports drivers a new and exclusive facility, where they will be able to train and race together as they battle for the Formula One Esports Series Pro Championship title.”
