Sports Direct Buys Half Of GAME’s Esport Arena Business

Sports Direct have continued their move in to esports by purchasing 50% of GAME’s esport arena business Belong for £3.2m. The move will see Sports Direct take 50% of all profits and GAME and Belong will now be integrated in to some of the Sports Direct stores on the high street.

Sports Direct already own 29% of GAME itself, having swooped on the company when their shares crashed (again) in July last year. Some of the £55m in capital supplied by Sports Direct will also be used to update the Belong website and for ‘new ventures’. Presumably that will include ridiculously oversized Belong mugs.

  3. Well it’s a good job I haven’t used Game for years as I strongly dislike Sports Direct.
