As Insomnia i53 kicks off explore its origins with Craig Fletcher: KitGuru TV

Multiplay’s Insomnia event is the biggest LAN in the UK and it runs three times a year. Now in its 53rd iteration, it is bigger and better than ever. As it kicks off, we get 1-on-1 with founder and CEO Craig Fletcher to look at where it is now and its humble beginnings.

When a dispute between Coventry City Football Club and the owners of the Ricoh Arena left the stadium stranded for ages, it created an opportunity for the largest LAN in town to establish a new home. Today, on Friday 21st November 2104, the switches will be flicked and a huge amount of bandwidth/electrons will be drawn into the stadium as i53 kicks off for real. Here’s the history from the man who knows.

KitGuru says: Stunning event and something that every gamer should attend at least once – even if you go as a spectator the first time.
