Gen.G opens headquarters in Los Angeles

Multinational organisation Gen.G esports has opened up its new headquarters and training facility in Los Angeles.

The organisation’s US-based Call of Duty, Apex Legends, and Fortnite teams will all operate within the facility, alongside its content creators and 15 employees.

The 13,000 square foot headquarters is located in EA Games’ building and equipped with three practice rooms, a film review room, and six streaming rooms. There’s also a cafeteria, sleeping pods, and a jersey closet.

Chris Park, CEO of Gen.G esports discussed the facility: “We feel really great about the state of our organization as we continue to push the industry forward by spearheading initiatives worldwide. Our fans can expect Gen.G’s presence to only grow across the U.S. following the announcement of this breathtaking LA facility.”

The facility is said to mirror that in which Gen.G opened in Seoul, Korea last year. The players and content creators will live minutes away and have access to gym memberships, personal trainers, physical therapy, and various sports facilities.

Arnold Hur, COO of Gen.G esports added: “Establishing our presence globally has been a priority over the last few years — that included the introduction of competitive US-based teams. Gen.G couldn’t be more excited about the progress we’ve made in the US market. We have an amazing group of players on board and they’re now in a top-notch setting where they’ll continue to sustain a winning culture.”

Esports Insider says: It’d be remiss to ignore the fact that the headquarters looks rather impressive, if not costly. We’re honestly glad to see that the trend of gaming houses is being replaced with thought-out facilities such as this, it should help to separate work from other responsibilities and relaxation for the players and content creators.
