The Cavs Legion Gaming Club — the Cavaliers' entry in the 2-year-old NBA 2K League — is now operating out of a new esports facility in Cleveland's Battery Park neighborhood.
The facility, located on Father Frascati Drive, in the same building as Terrestrial Brewing Co., encompasses more than 2,700 square feet, has state-of-the-art gaming technology and quality views of Edgewater Beach.
The Cavs, however, are envisioning the space going way beyond the NBA 2K League, which has grown from 17 to 21 franchises as it closes in on the end of its second season.
The facility will also host esports tournaments that will be open to the public, community events that will be geared toward the educational aspect of gaming and will be available to rent out for corporate outings or private parties. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
