Located in the legendary Burbank Studios, which was the home of the original The Tonight Show plus many other well-known productions. Like The Fresh Prince of Bell Air and Saved by the Bell - both the original and The New Class. Ahem. Anyway, Blizzard Arena Los Angeles will open its doors October 7 for the Overwatch Contenders Playoffs.
And on October 13, the the Hearthstone Championship Tour’s Summer Championship will be at the new venue for a full weekend of competition. Plus, the Heroes of the Storm Global Championship (HGC) Finals and World of Warcraft Arena Championship in the lead-up to BlizzCon 2017.
“We’re at a tipping point for esports and we look forward to helping usher in a new era of competition-based entertainment,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “As we open the doors of Blizzard Arena Los Angeles and welcome fans from around the world, we’re honoured to bring the best in Blizzard esports to the same stage that some of the biggest names in entertainment have called home.”
As of now, all we have is the logo - so we'll have to wait until it opens to get a good look at the new U.S.-based home for Blizzard esports.
