Portal introduces Eleven

Following on from last weeks show as we briefly spoke abut some games that were showcased at Portal Con. Game Designer Ignacy Trezicek also revealed a Football Management style game called Eleven.

Friday 30th July to Sunday 1st August 2021.

 They are planning for two possible forms of a show. A normal show with as many of the features as you expect to see at a UKGE or a socially distanced event. This would include steps to make demos, tournaments and live shows distanced, wider aisles in the trade halls and reduced daily ticket numbers to keep everyone safe. We will follow local and national regulations and restrictions.

Until we know what is allowed we must plan for both eventualities but can't give you any more info until we know this ourselves.


Ticket sales will become available after Easter.
