esports Stadium Arlington

  • esports Stadium Arlington is located in the Arlington Entertainment District adjacent to 2 major sports stadiums: Globe Life Park and AT&T Stadium, home to the Texas Rangers Major League Baseball team and the Dallas Cowboys. It is also adjacent to the Sheraton hotel in Arlington and Six Flags Over Texas.
  • The major attractions to the area are the 2 major sports stadiums and Six Flags. Thus, there are not direct news articles, surveys or reports detailing the esports stadium's effect on local retail.
  • The closest significant retail development is Lincoln Square, located just under 1 mile to the west. A complete listing of its stores is found on its website.
  • Champions Park is another shopping development located in the district. Of note, their web page designates the 2 major sports stadiums and Six Flags but does not mention esports Stadium Arlington.
  • The esports Stadium Arlington's website does not discuss adjacent or co-located retail.
  • News articles from recent past years referencing the almost $1 billion development in the entertainment district do not detail information about the esports Stadium Arlington's effect on local retail.
  • Specifically, the esports stadium opened inside the Arlington Convention Center.
  • While not applicable to the esports Stadium Arlington, the current trend is to locate esports arenas in (soon to be) declining occupancy shopping malls.
  • The only two partners listed on the stadium's website are HyperX and Nvidia GeForce.
