Las Vegas steps up on the global gaming stage with the launch of the first permanent electronic sports venue, Esports Arena, opening on The Strip at Luxor Hotel and Casino.
The 2,787sqm multilevel arena gives local and international visitors access to over 100 gaming stations housing PCs and consoles.
“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.
Arena elements includes the first-ever esports culinary programme created by chef José Andrés. “The menu is practical for the gaming environment,” the chef commented.
