20 years of pure
gaming passion

In 1997, Craig “Wizzo” Fletcher dropped out of medical school to found Multiplay, a company built to formalise his university hobby of running small LAN gaming events into a recognised business.

Following many years of success with events such as Insomnia and providing game server hosting to millions of gamers, Multiplay joined forces with Game Digital Plc in 2015 to focus on eSports and events.

Unity Technologies acquired Multiplay and the game hosting business from Game in November 2017 where we continue our mission as the world’s leading game hosting provider.
