The Moche XL eSports event builds on the Moche Legend brand supported by Altice. The brand encompasses two national eSports leagues: Moche LPLOL, focusing on League of Legends, and Moche LPGO, focusing on CS:GO.

The event will take place at the arena on June 9 and 10 next year. In addition to League of Legends and CS:GO, Moche XL eSports will feature a stage in the tournament built around leading mobile game Clash Royale and a stage of FIFA ’18.

Moche XL eSports will be produced by E2tech, which is responsible for the existing Lisbon Games Week event and XLparty, with public broadcaster RTP and SAPO contributing as media partners.

In addition to the competition stages, the event will feature a venue for XLparty’s LAN Parties, a stage dedicated to the game community featuring startups from younger creators, an eSports conference, team events, game launches, new technologies and a retro-gaming area.
