Esports Arena, the company behind the permanent Esports Arena in California and Allied Esports have announced that they will open a new location in Las Vegas.
The Luxor in Las Vegas will house the new arena, which is set to open in 2018. The team will convert the 30,000 square foot club in the iconic pyramid shaped building into a dedicated eSports arena. All of the fancy features you would expect have been promised, with the building work expected to start soon.
“We have very ambitious expansion plans over the next two years, and when we realized that a location at Luxor was possible, we jumped at the opportunity to develop our flagship here,” said Jud Hannigan, CEO of Allied Esports International. “Just as Yankee Stadium, Madison Square Garden and Wembley Stadium are considered their sports’ most aspirational venues by players and fans alike, Esports Arena Las Vegas will be the iconic destination in esports and complement the city’s incredible appeal, attracting video gaming competitors and fans from around the world.”
“Our company is the leader in the entertainment industry and recognizes the exciting growth in esports,” added Niklas Rytterstrom, general manager of Luxor. “With this partnership, we will introduce a new experience to the market, once again elevating the city’s vast entertainment offerings.”
