This week, organizers behind the Esports Awards 2019 ceremony announced it would be taking place this year in Arlington, Texas. Specifically at the Esports Stadium Arlington on November 16th, 2019, with tickets officially on sale right now. The awards have been in London for the past three years, but this year organizers decided it was time for a change and did so with a move to the United States. We have a few quotes from the press release about the move and this year’s awards for you below.
”We are extremely excited and honored to have the opportunity to partner with the Esports Awards for the next three years,” said Jonathon Oudthone, President of Esports Stadium Arlington. “By hosting the Esports Awards at our state-of-the-art facility, we are one step closer to achieving our goal of becoming the central hub for esports in North America. We wouldn’t be the most prestigious esports venue without hosting the most prestigious esports awards show on the planet.”
“The Arlington Convention & Visitors Bureau and the City of Arlington have been very welcoming, and we feel very comfortable that our new home will deliver the biggest and best Esports Awards to date,” said Tom Mercey, CEO and Co-founder of the Esports Awards. “We are humbled and excited at the opportunity to host the awards in a city with such high sporting and events acumen. Our audience can look forward to a few surprises along the way to what will be a defining ceremony for the Esports Awards.”
“Arlington is no stranger to hosting world class events, and the Esports Awards are another one we look forward to spotlighting in November,” said Ron Price, President & CEO of the Arlington Convention & Visitors Bureau. “As a top destination for entertainment, sports and esports, we welcome esports athletes and gamers to our city and look forward to hosting the Esports Awards on November 16th!”
