In a UK premiere, the team behind the global phenomenon Pokémon GO, will be bringing their hugely successful 'Safari Zone' event format to Liverpool!
From Friday 17 to Sunday 19 April, Sefton Park will become a ‘Pokémon GO Safari Zone’ and will play host to tens of thousands of gamers, known as Pokémon Trainers, from across the globe who will search Sefton park, on the hunt for augmented reality characters.
Niantic Inc., the team behind Pokémon GO, is joining forces with Liverpool City Council’s Culture Liverpool team, to bring the event to the UK for the first time after delivering similar successful events across the world in recent years.
This is a huge coup for the city. Previous live events held by Niantic in 2019 in Chicago, Montréal and Dortmund are estimated to have generated around £191million ($249million) for the local economies.
