Allied Esports, a network of dedicated esports properties and content production facilities, have officially announced a grand opening date and a major partnership for Esports Arena Las Vegas as well as the first stop for its new mobile arena, Esports Arena Drive.
Esports Arena Las Vegas will officially open its doors at Luxor Hotel and Casino on Thursday, March 22nd with a series of events, including an invitation-only, multi-day, live-streamed tournament, with official details to be announced at a later date.
Jud Hannigan, CEO of Allied Esports said: “Esports Arena Las Vegas is the cornerstone of our property, brand and content development and will allow us to engage esports communities, brands and stakeholders like never before. With Las Vegas rapidly becoming a hub for esports, Esports Arena Las Vegas at Luxor will be the city’s home for competitive gaming and interactive entertainment.”
Allied Esports and Esports Arena have partnered with Luxor to transform the former nightclub space into a multi-level arena with a competition stage, LED video wall, telescopic seating, daily gaming stations, and state-of-the-art streaming and television-quality production studios.
Allied Esports also announced an exclusive partnership with HARMAN Professional Solutions, producer of audio, video, lighting and control systems, including networked AV (AVLC), for Esports Arena Las Vegas, with the agreement covering the integrated AVLC systems for the 30,000-square foot venue and production studio.
Allied Esports and Esports Arena also introduced its latest mobile solution, Esports Arena Drive, North America’s first mobile esports touring arena, featuring a competition stage with full production facilities, a caster studio, social media center and VIP lounge.
“Esports Arena Drive gives us an amazing opportunity to reach communities around the country in a truly authentic and awesome way,” said Tyler Endres, COO of Esports Arena. “For players, viewers online, and partners alike, Esports Arena Drive will bring the Esports Arena experience to wherever the fans are.”
We look forward to seeing what Allied Esports can pull out of the bag on March 22nd – updates soon to be announced.
Esports Insider says: The idea of the Esports Arena Drive is definitely one we’re intrigued by, with its hints towards a “tour bus” vibe. It will be interesting to see what becomes of Esports Arena Las Vegas; Vegas is looking to become something of a hotbed for esports, but we will have to reserve judgement until we see what they can do.
