The largest college E-Sports arena has emerged at Full Sail University. Will this be the start of the NCAA style of E-Sports Stadiums around the U.S.? E-Sports is continuing to grow and develop. Full Sail University had a grand opening for their E-Sports Arena on Tuesday, May 21 and announced their E-Sports team as Armada. Will this become the beginning of an E-Sports college league and will this become as big as March Madness is for college basketball? I sure hope so. E-Sports, as a whole, has been emerging as one of the most high-level professional team and single player gaming event forums in the world. Sponsors have made investments into teams and the E-Sports field as a whole
This new E-Sports stadium’s occupancy reaches 500 people, which could make this a major venue for students and gamers in Florida. The size of the entire arena is 11,200 square feet, which makes Full Sail University in ownership of the largest E-Sports College Arena. I’m definitely excited to go and view the stage myself, as being a current student of Full Sail’s Game Design bachelor of science program. I am hoping that their team can compete and make serious noise in E-Sports competitions in the near future. The arena’s name is called “The Fortress” and the collegiate E-Sports name is The Armada. Florida Mayhem, an Atlantic Division E-Sports team, visited the campus and was the only team from Florida that competed in the Atlantic Division of the Overwatch League.
“Not only will it be the largest collegiate E-Sports arena, but the Fortress will also house incredible technology aimed at delivering the best E-Sports experience, including the latest generation live video equipment by Ross Video, Sony video monitors and cameras, giant high-resolution LED screens by Absen, multi-zone loudspeaker systems by L-Acoustics, media servers by Green Hippo, and high-bandwidth dedicated internet connectivity to guarantee the best game-playing and viewing experience for our audience,” said Luis Garcia, Vice President of Emerging Technologies at Full Sail University.
