Esports games offer captivating action and a chance to compete in a multi-billion-dollar industry. Get in the action at the Magic City ePlex in Birmingham, Alabama. We offer arena competition that transforms into a cutting-edge café after action.

Where can I watch esports in the United States?

The growth of esports is not unnoticed. The first arena opened in Santa Anna, California in 2015.

You no longer need to travel across the country to watch your game. ePlex offers a professional environment for tournaments in Alabama. Even Ohio State is getting in on the ground floor with an 80-seat facility.

How big is esports?

Esports is a multi-billion-dollar industry. Over 165 million enthusiasts and 215 million occasional viewers at tournaments from South Korea to Boston. Games range from sports simulations to League of Legends and Overwatch.

This unprecedented growth started only a few decades ago in the United States. Stanford hosted the first competition in 1972. By the 1980s, Walter Day founded Twin Galaxies and the US National Video Game Team while Starcade enthralled television audiences.

Bringing esports back to America

Interest in gaming did not wane in the 1990s. Professional tournaments exploded in Asia. Nearly 53 percent of viewers live in Korea, Japan, and China. Platforms and counsels helped move skills beyond the second dimension.

The Magic City ePlex will help put North America back on the map with a cutting-edge venue everyone can enjoy. Grab a beer or a slice and watch your local Birmingham team take on the world inside a dedicated arena.

Is there an esports gaming incubator in the South?

Gain access to some of the best technology. Get an edge over the competition. Get your name out and prepare to captivate fans across the globe.

Why do video games need a dedicated arena?

Our sport is not like a standard game. Instead of participating in courts in an easily visible manner, our teams compete on hardware that is impossible to view.

The Magic City ePlex takes care of every detail in bringing you the best that gaming offers. Our partners provide the latest virtual reality technology. Our design guarantees a front-row seat to unparalleled action.
