North American organisation DarkZero Esports has completed the purchase of, and opened the doors to, its new Las Vegas gaming house.
The 8,000 square foot, seven-bedroom facility – which houses the organisation’s players and content creators – was purchased by CEO Zach Matula on behalf of DarkZero in March.
Director of Operations Rob Stamey, former General Manager of Ghost Gaming, was said to have spent the summer working closely with celebrity designer Kelly Edwards to “transform” the space ahead of its August 30th opening.
Matula commented on the house in a release: “We love this property not only for the amazing features it currently provides but for its expandability and potential to house future teams.”
The facility intentionally separates residential living space from its offices to “provide respite for the players” and help maintain a balanced and healthy lifestyle to combat burnout. Amid its amenities are a dedicated coaching area, production studio and editing bay, two streaming pods, an indoor gym, and a “state-of-the-art” bullpen for DarkZero players to train in.
Additionally, the residence features an area dedicated to organisation, player, and staff achievements called the “Hall of Heroes.” This includes hand-painted portraits of distinguished players, content creators, and coaching staff who have been members of DarkZero for more than two years.
A release states Matula plans to continue building on the 1.4 acre property to house future rosters and creators.
Esports Insider says: Las Vegas is growing into a small hub for esports, and that notion has been accelerated by the inclusion of this new gaming house from DarkZero.
