ABOUT ESPORTS ARENA

Esports Arena, North America's first dedicated esports facility, has collaborated with Walmart to bring esports to the front door of communities all over the USA. Similar to Esports Arena's main locations in Orange County and Oakland, their Walmart locations have weekly league nights Monday - Friday that are structured in an 8 week format with nightly prize-pools and Large Scale Season Finale Events. Open play hours exist daily for customers to play any games they like, try out new gaming products or games, or practice for an upcoming match. Hours roll over to each day which allows you to spread them out and not have to use them all in one session.

All arenas are equipped with top of the line HyperX peripherals, gaming chairs and OVERPOWERED PCs, which were developed specifically for gamers by Esports Arena, and are available exclusively on Walmart.com. Through the collaboration with Walmart, Esports Arena associates will be able to help customers purchase gaming products within Walmart stores and on Walmart.com

Esports Arena is set to be the bridge for esports into the mainstream entertainment ecosystem. Their goal is to support the industries grassroots scene by continuing to grow their footprint through Walmart and provide everyone an equal chance to be involved with esports. This will allow players from all over to have a chance to not only enjoy playing games, but a chance to show off their skills at a national level to gain exposure. This can ultimately lead to players who are involved in their leagues to get recognition, and potentially get picked up by professional organizations or colleges.

Partnering up with Walmart has made this goal attainable and will allow us to scale this vision to reality. This partnership will change the landscape of the esports industry for the better and hopefully provide a platform to stabilize the growth and opportunity within it.
