Multiplay’s eSports festival Insomnia48 begins today and runs through to Sunday, March 25. Watch the opening ceremony live on VG247 at noon and come back for all the major finals over the weekend.

We’ll have plenty of coverage from Insomnia48 across the weekend, where there will be plenty of fierce eSports competition, including the £10,000 prize pot StarCraft 2 ESET UK Masters finals, which promises to be a tense battle of wits.

You can watch the ESET UK Masters live via Twitch.

There’s also the Razer League of Legends Cup, the Mad Catz Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Cup Finals, Aquatuning’s Team Fortress 2 Cup and the finals of Multiplay’s own Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 tourney.

    Sam was supposed to be there, but he’s just taken off for San Fran and GDC. None of us are there, which sucks. Definitely will be next time.
