Esports set to expand here as city, private groups plan future efforts


Central Florida has become a top destination for the fast-growing esports industry.

The area added Full Sail University’s esports-specific venue last year to hundreds of hotel ballrooms.

Add in the Amway Center and you have a variety of venues for event hosts to consider.

Just in the last year, the NHL and NBA hosted esports events here.

Call of Duty World Championships have also come.

And Magic Gaming became one of the inaugural teams of the NBA 2K League.

The esports industry also has some potential to grow as Electronic Arts plans its move to downtown in 2021.
