Millennial Esports

The eSports market has just been hit with the information that next month Millennial Esports arena will be opened in Las Vegas.

Millennial Esports has 15,000 square foot and enough room to host an event with 500 person audience. The new eSports arena will have full broadcasting facility, as well as resources for online casters who use Twitch for example.

Alex Igleman, CEO of Pro Gaming League:

“We’re looking to build a caster experience where someone can come in off the street and be able to cast a game that’s going on in our facility or online and learn how to do some casting, and then they’ll be able to record it and stream it.”

At this point, it is certain that Millenial Esports arena will host tournaments across such titles as League of Legends, Hearthstone, Call of Duty, Overwatch and Halo.  The owners of Millenial Esports do not exclude other popular titles, such as Counter-Strike Global Offensive, Starcraft 2 or World of Tanks.

The rising popularity of eSports phenomenon influences the online betting market, as more and more players wish to place bets on their favourite players and teams. The facility will keep its focus on strictly eSports titles and it will not include such gambling games, as roulette, poker, blackjack or slots.

Alex Igleman, CEO of Pro Gaming League:

“We want to host events that are wagered on, but we don’t have any intention at this point to undergo licensing. That said, if there is an ability to work with someone like the Downtown Grand or William Hill, for example, with kiosks then by all means we would be open to it.”

The very first event hosted at Millennial Esports will be Halo tournament with a $25,000 prize pool. Three-day competitions will take place on 18-20 November and comprise qualifiers from previous smaller online tournaments. The winner will become the North America Champion.
