Localhost Arena, the largest esports arena in Colorado is scheduled to open in November, occupied by Philadelphia-based company N3rd Street Gamers.
The 18,000 square-foot space is still in the works but the grand opening is already scheduled for November. The Localhost Arena will feature 120 custom build PC stations with monitors by BenQ, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch consoles.
John Fazio, founder, and CEO of N3rd Street Gamers said: “Localhost Arena will be our largest and most advanced facility, and we are excited to push forward innovation in our industry while being a home to developing esports athletes in Colorado.”
Colorado has a strong presence in the collegiate leagues. Teams from Colorado State, Northern Colorado, Colorado Mesa and Colorado College are competing in League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Rocket League.
Localhost Arena is looking to become the prime location for all things esports in Colorado. The permanent 60-foot stage will be ready to host esports events every weekend and receive up to 1,000 visitors.
James Love, Director of Communications for N3rd Street Gamers said: “It’ll be a go-to location for competition, casual gaming, live events, and local meet-ups.”
Visitors can pay $3 an hour or $20 a day, additionally to the gaming area, the Localhost Arena has a full-service bar and lounge. Regular visitors will also be able to acquire a monthly membership, though a price has not yet been announced. The membership will grant them access to the arena, perks and periodic discounts, alongside gaming area use. Esports events will also charge an entrance fee.
Fazio added: “Denver is close to my heart as a place I have travelled to annually for decades, more importantly, it is a strategic location that provides access to one of the country’s strongest and oldest gaming communities.”
Localhost Arena will work Wednesday through Sunday, from noon until 2:00 am.
Esports Insider says: It is always better to share a good gaming session with a friend. Places like Localhost Arena bring the communities together and encourage the players to take part in the competitions no matter their skill level. A positive project that will contribute to the scene in Colorado.
