Team SoloMid To Build State-Of-The-Art Esports Training Facility
Esports franchise Team SoloMid will "begin construction" next week on a 25,000-square-foot training center in Playa Vista, Calif., according to Arash Markazi of the L.A. TIMES. The $13M facility is "slated to be completed" by February '20 and will be the "home of Team SoloMid." Currently, TSM players and staff are "spread out around the world." TSM Founder & CEO Andy Dinh said, "I actually toured the Lakers and Warriors facilities as we thought about our facility. What they built was great for basketball players and we wanted to build a similar facility catered for esports players." Markazi notes the facility will be the "largest esports training facility in North America when it opens and will house studios, streaming rooms, gaming rooms, coach rooms as well as a fitness studio and wellness center, making it the first esports training center to include both" (L.A. TIMES, 9/12).
