Besiktas Have A FIFA Hub In Their Stadium And It's Everything

Besiktas' Vodafone Park is one of the most impressive stadiums in the world and it's gone up another notch with its latest innovation.

Opened in 2016, the UEFA category 41,00 capacity stadium was built on the site of the Istanbul giants' former ground but has been constructed to give it a more modern feel.

Now, the arena has become even more state-of-the-art thanks to a unique gaming hub built in the stadium.

The area, which has just been opened features a plethora of Xbox Ones with flat screen TV's and FIFA 18 but also comprises of PC gaming systems, virtual reality technology and a swanky bar to keep gamers refreshed during intense matches.

I'd been aware that Manchester City have an EA Sports centre within the family stand at the Etihad Stadium, allowing fans to play out games before they watch the real thing itself, but Besiktas' creation is well and truly revolutionary. For young fans, it's going to down a treat - Fortnite, CS: GO, PUBG and FIFA for days.

It wouldn't be the first time the 15-time Turkish Super Lig winner have stepped into groundbreaking territory. When the stadium was officially opened with the visit of Bursaspor two years ago, it emerged that a number of top of the range seats in the 'smart lounge' came with mini TV's for replays of the actions.

We wait and see if an English club takes a leaf out of their book and follows suit...
