FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
London– 22nd January 2008– TNWA Group, UK’s leading online tournament gaming sites, today announced the strategic acquisition of one of the UK’s most successful LAN party organisers, CentralanUK (CLUK).
Specialising in BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer/Console) events, CLUK has catered for everything from cash-prize tournaments to private functions since it began five years ago, steadily rising in popularity to become the second largest organisation of its kind in the UK.
Under the TNWA group, CLUK will now be able to offer the full offline package to its LAN event attendees, as well as providing exhibition space for its game publishing and hardware sponsors.
The next event (CentralanUK #19), starting on the 29th February will be held at Uttoxeter Racecourse, Staffordshire, and cater for over 160 people. TNWA will be putting up over£1,000 of prizes for competitors, but the event also promises to draw in a just-for-fun crowd.
“We have been interested in the CentralanUK offering for some time now,” Paul Sulyok, CEO of The TNWA Group said.“Their fantastic reputation within the community and tried and tested formula is perfectly aligned with the continually expanding end-to-end gamer proposition TNWA offers.”
Jon Winkle, Event Manager from CentralanUK, said:“Working with TNWA will increase CLUK’s offering to the community in orders of magnitude. BYOC LAN events continue to grow in popularity, especially with the inclusion of console players, and the support we’re receiving from TNWA will allow CLUK to continue to grow to meet its real potential.”
