Esport Supply will provide its arena design and build services to construct the lab. The facility is expected to include a number of recreational gaming areas, as well as a broadcast media studio and lounge for students to watch esports events.
Chris Turner, Coordinator of SULC’s Mixed Reality Virtual Innovation Gaming and Esports Institute, spoke on the partnership in a release: “The Mixed Reality Virtual Innovation Gaming and Esports Institute looks forward to the partnership with Esport Supply. This project allows us to create relationships with industry and develop programming not only for SULC students but Southern University students, K-12, and unrepresented communities.
