…This time, VSFighting will come in a little earlier marking our first July major. The main line-up is definitely going to be tighter than usual but should include something for everyone and we hope it will lead to a better event experience too - and a framework for VSF2019 too!
We’re back at Millennium Point – again! For many, this was one of the stand out venues for European fighting game tournaments, so it’s a pleasure to announce that we’ll be returning there…We’ve streamlined things substantially since last year’s event – better options for food and better spaces. And yes, comfy cinema seating. And yes, big ass screen...
Whether you’re a new player or a seasoned pro, add VSFighting 2018 to your calendar now...you won't want to miss it!
Can't wait to see you there! -
Millennium Point is a short walk from Birmingham City Centre so travel is easy. Digbeth Coach Station and the New Street, Moor St and Snow Hill Train Stations are all within a 10 minute walk.
From Birmingham Airport: Trains to New Street are available from £4 per ticket right inside the airport...Taxis take 15 minutes and cost around £12. Trains from London are as low as £5!
Parking: Adjacent to the venue at £6 p/day or with private parking from £2.50 within a 5 minute walk. Roadside parking is free on Sundays and evenings (please pay attention to on-site signage).
Central Birmingham is filled with great hotel options; anything within the city centre should be within walking distance but we really like:
Conference Aston Hotel [well balanced 5:5]
Clayton Hotel [close enough to wake up super]
Staybridge Suites [great spaces for secret sessions] Anywhere on Broad Street [clubs and bars to sooth the the salt]
*If you are considering the Britannia or the Paragon, please check Trip Advisor before you book. Please.
Competitors are responsible for bringing their own controllers and (3.5mm) headsets. Please have the relevant pads, sticks and cables for the games you are entering and look after them!

Electronic Dojo is a grassroots, Birmingham based community and the backbone of the VSFighting Tournament Series. Over the last 10 years we've watched the UK fighting games scene flourish and hope to keep growing the competitive stage for the games we love!
