ocated in Burbank Studios, Blizzard Arena has been designed specifically for esports competitions and broadcasts, and will be able to hold about 450 attendees depending on the event. 

"With multiple sound stages, control rooms, and practice facilities, Blizzard Arena Los Angeles was built to support a full slate of competitive events year-round," Blizzard said in a release.

The first season of Blizzard's ambitious Overwatch League, which kicks off at a to-be-announced date this year, will be hosted in Los Angeles as teams around the world find home arenas in the cities they represent. At least some of the matches will be played at Blizzard Arena.

This isn't the first esports-centric arena in the United States. The ELeague Arena in Turner's studios in Atlanta has played host to Counter-StrikeStreet Fighter, and Overwatchcompetitions.
