North American esports organisation Envy Gaming has agreed to acquire Esports Stadium Arlington in Texas.
Envy Gaming will use the stadium to host home team matches and attract events to the city of Arlington.
Envy Gaming acquired the operating contract for the stadium from Esports Venues LLC, a group previously owned by Texas Rangers co-owner Neil Leibman. The first event to take place under the new ownership will be the Call of Duty League Kickoff Classic in late January.
The Esports Stadium Arlington first opened in 2018 as one of the pioneering esports facilities of its type in North America. The venue is equipped with everything needed for hosting esports events, from a fully-functional RGB stage to audio and video production facilities and an expo hall space. The Esports Stadium Arlington most recently hosted The Esports Awards, an industry award show that took place in late 2021.
Geoff Moore, president and COO at Envy, added: “Esports Stadium Arlington is without a doubt the best venue in North America right now for any publisher or league considering an esports event with spectators. Keeping Esports Stadium Arlington operating at a high level is a natural extension of what we strive for at Envy Gaming: we want to give all people that love gaming the opportunity to enjoy amazing competitions in a social environment.”
Envy Gaming is working towards securing a naming rights partner for the venue in the future.
City Manager Trey Yelverton, added: “Esports Stadium Arlington has been in the national spotlight since day one with its high-tech capabilities and the calibre of new events it has brought to our city. Opening this stadium was part of our broader economic development strategy to appeal to a younger generation, to attract entrepreneurs in the fast-growing esports industry, and to brand Arlington with a more modern vibe.”
Esports Insider says: Envy Gaming now has the right to one of the most high-tech esports venue in North America. The Arlington stadium is known as a state-of-the-art building, and Envy Gaming is now one of the first esports brands in the world to have a stadium, similar to football and basketball teams around the world. What a milestone.
