FAQ

Why should I start an esports center?

There are too many reasons to list! But for starters, there are over 214 million Americans who play video games, but not many quality establishments where people can gather together. Esports represents a new and up-and-coming sport that requires an ecosystem to support casual, serious and competitive players, just like regular sports. Gamers need digital performance centers as they often can’t get the performance they need at home. And the social aspects of playing together is one of the core reasons for the explosive growth of esports – but it’s impossible to duplicate what an esports center offers at home.

How long does it take to work with a client from initial conception to opening their center?

It can take on average 6 months, but building an esports center is not a 100% structured process. There are organic elements as well as areas that an owner may wish to spend more time on. As it’s impossible for anyone to accurately predict everything that unfolds in the process of starting a new business, especially one that has varying degrees of complexity and intricacy, the process may be shorter or longer depending on the circumstances. This is why we strongly suggest you take advantage of our business planning services, to get everything on paper before doing anything else.

Do you give consultation on tournaments? What’s your tournament background?

Yes, we can offer tournament consultations, based on our own success. We currently host the longest running SSBU (Smash Bros.) tournaments in the world, having run a weekly consistently since 2019, with the exception of the Covid-19 period. Great companies take a niche and make it available to a wider audience, and when we first started, esports was not as mainstream as it is now, so we’ve had arguably a much more difficult time breaking through than a newer center opening now would.
