SwitzerLAN 2020 weekend 1 went smooth! After having caught up on some sleep and after catching a little bit of sunlight, our crew is back at BERNEXPO preparing for the second weekend. Everything has been cleaned and disinfected and we're ready for weekend two!


For those of you who are joining us this weekend: don't forget to enter your contact details in your profile on our website beforehand and pack enough face masks. We're looking forward to seeing you guys buy AWPs, breach walls and hot drop into Pochinki.


Test your musical skills on the Ovo Rocks Band Stage, reminisce about old times at our Baywatch Pinball machine, challenge your mates on the Rocket League pitch in our TCS van, and get your spook on.


See you guys tomorrow!

Final Update

Friday, 25.09.2020 06:56 by Valentin

One week before the first weekend of SwitzerLAN, we want to give you guys a final update on how things are going down. We are taking all necessary security and hygiene measures to make sure we’re all safe at this amazing LAN party.


SwitzerLAN is just one week away – or two if you belong to the 300 people attending the second weekend. In this news post we want to bring everyone up to date on our Corona safety measures.

In our last post, we’ve already announced most of the rules concerning Corona. Make sure you scroll down after this update to catch up on those.

In addition, we are now requiring all players and staff to wear a mask when leaving their designated seating space. Plus, there will be no party at the bar to avoid the formation of crowds.

Also: every participant must have their own mattress. Partners, girlfriends, and boyfriends CANNOT share a mattress. We realize this is annoying, but those are the canton of Bern’s rules that we have to follow in order to be able to organize the event. 

Every person’s sleeping spot is 95 centimeters wide. You have plenty of space next to it where you can deposit your luggage.

The HeroFest takes place digitally this year. While we’re gaming downstairs, a team is producing content and streaming live out of BERNEXPO at the same time. However, with the exception of teams who play at the Swisscom HeroLeague or other tournaments at the HeroFest, SwitzerLAN participants are not allowed to enter the HeroFest production. This is because we have to avoid a breakout at both events at all costs.

To make up for some of the inconveniences, our good friends at Ovomaltine are bringing along a little surprise for you guys.

Despite the difficult situation, we’re happy to be able to do SwitzerLAN this year. We’re looking forward to the first LAN party in a while and want to thank you guys for sticking with us in these times!

See you guys in a week.

Your SwitzerLAN staff

SwitzerLAN 2020 Covid-19 Measures

Monday, 24.08.2020 13:26 by D4rio

SwitzerLAN will be different this year. Because of Covid-19 additional hygiene measures are going to be in place on both weekends. Read below what we’re doing to ensure everyone’s safety.



Unfortunately, we can’t have 2000 participants like last year. In order to make sure that everyone has enough space, we have a 300 seat limit per weekend. This way you never have to sit close to anyone else.

You will get a whole table for yourself (as opposed to two people per table as usual), with a designated sleeping space right next to it! This will ensure enough distance to the other participants.


Finally we want to encourage you to wear a mask everywhere when you are not at your seat.

Common areas will be cleaned regularly and our staff will be subject to various additional measures of sanitation.

This hygiene concept is going to be updated until the event takes place and is in tune with official local laws and restrictions.

Feel like a King with our VIP tickets

Wednesday, 12.08.2020 11:45 by Valentin

If you don’t feel like bringing your own PC to SwitzerLAN, you can simply buy one of our VIP tickets. If you have one, we set up a gaming PC by MIFCOM at your selected seat and you only have to worry about bringing peripherals. If you already have a ticket, simply purchase the VIP upgrade to turn your regular ticket into a special one.



What’s included?

  • - Gaming PC by MIFCOM with the most common games already installed. Specs are going to be announced at a later date.
  • - Gaming monitor
  • - VIP support in the form of a designated Discord server


What do you have to bring?

  • - Peripherals (headset, mouse, keyboard)
  • - Everything else on our packing list (mattress, hygiene articles,…)


What does it cost?

The VIP ticket costs 320.- Swiss Francs for one weekend. This price is a little lower than the usual 200.- in addition to the regular ticket price. That is because it doesn’t include a gaming chair this time.


How many are there?

We have 30 VIP seats per weekend. Experience shows that they are sold out rather quickly, so if you really want one, make sure to get yours in time. VIP ticket sales start on Wednesday, 12.08. at 6pm in our store.
