At E-Sports tourney, another use of the "public" plaza

The Barclays Center this weekend is hosting the live E-Sports tournament ESL One, and will do so again next year. It's a big deal in the gaming world.

And, as shown in the photo below, taken yesterday morning, a nice logo for photo backdrops occupies a central point in the "public" plaza (aka Resorts World Casino NYC Plaza), and a series of metal fencing was set up to corral attendees.

A 12/12/16 press release from ESL One:
In 2017, the Barclays Center in New York will once again be home to an ESL One event! Together with AEG, we are happy to announce our return to Brooklyn for the next four years, making the Barclays Center ESL One’s North American flagship event and home of the biggest esports tournament on the East Coast. The next event will take place on the 16th and 17th of September in 2017, featuring CS:GO a second straight time.
Secure your tickets from Thursday, December 15 at 10 a.m.
After the debut in October this year, showing us some of the best players in the world in both CS:GO and Street Fighter V, ESL One New York is now set to be a pillar in the tournament calendar for years to come.
