From museums to public art exhibits to Raiders games and the Metropolitan Ballet, the City of Arlington has always been a huge proponent of arts and entertainment—in particular featuring the sports and sporting events at our very own world-renowned facilities.
Unsurprisingly, Arlington has also been a strong supporter of the thriving and rapidly growing phenomenon that is esports.
If you aren’t familiar with the term, esports refers to a form of competition via video games, normally regarding multiplayer games between both amateur and professional players. The game Fortnite took the world by storm just a few years ago and quickly became one of the biggest games on the market. Championships for Fortnite, along with other massive and familiar games such as League of Legends, Call of Duty, PUBG, Overwatch, and Halo, form some of the most exciting and anticipating events in esports each year.
