World’s first permanent esports venue launches in Las Vegas

The Esports Arena, the world’s first permanent esports venue, has been launched in Las Vegas.

The 2787 sqm multilevel arena will open on The Strip, at the Luxor Hotel and Casino, and gives local and international visitors access to over 100 gaming stations housing PCs and consoles.

The arena’s website reads: “The 30,000-square-foot, multilevel arena is designed to host every form of competitive gaming, from daily play to high-stakes esports tournaments, and features a competition stage, 50-foot LED video wall, telescopic seating, PC and console gaming stations, and a network TV-quality production studio.

“Accompanying elements like virtual reality platforms, retro gaming consoles and a comprehensive menu by world-renowned chef José Andrés set the arena apart as an unrivalled esports entertainment experience for both casual and professional gamers, or even non-gamers who want an insider’s look at what’s quickly becoming one of the world’s most popular spectator sports.”

Among the gaming and venue highlights are two Virtuix Omni boards, which put players head-to-head in an immersive gaming environment; a 360-degree video wall; a collection of arcade favourites and throwback classics; a production studio; and five VIP rooms. Furthermore, the front lobby, second floor, main hall and the entire arena are available for rent.

“We opened Esports Arena Las Vegas to be the championship destination for our global network of properties and a daily hub for all gaming communities,” said Allied Esports CEO Jud Hannigan.
