Blizzard Arena Los Angeles

Video game publisher Blizzard Entertainment has opened a brand new eSports facility in Burbank, Calif., which will serve as an arena for Overwatch action.

Blizzard Arena features multiple auditoriums that will house guests, players and casters alike, while hosting competitions that will be streamed lived on Twitch.

Additionally, the space features a gift shop and concessions stand outside the main auditorium, as well as a “Hall of Champions” that displays trophies, jerseys and medals that honor past champions of various Heroes of the Storm and StarCraft competitions.

Blizzard’s new eSports arena will be open for the first time on October 7, when Cloud 9 takes on Misfits in the Overwatch Contenders Season One Playoffs.
