Envy Gaming, based in Dallas since 2007, announced on January 13 that it will now be operating and managing Esports Stadium Arlington.
According to a news release, an agreement was made with Esports Venues, LLC, for the operations to be taken over by Envy Gaming, a company that “owns professional esports teams,” produces “content creation networks,” and operates virtual and in-person events. The gaming company takes on the biggest “turnkey esports facility in North America” and already has a big event coming live this week.
Esports Stadium Arlington opened in November 2018. The 100,000 square foot venue features a changeable layout, an RGB stage, professional audio and lights, ninety-foot LED displays, secured technology systems, a high-performance internet connection, and an expo hall for additional gatherings or activities.
It provides the ultimate space for gaming events designed specifically for spectators. This unique community-building venue hosted its first sold-out event since the pandemic in July 2021.
The stadium will start the year hosting a kickoff tournament for the global Call of Duty League. Twelve teams and thousands of fans will flock to Arlington for the three-day event, from January 21 through January 23. Click here to see the tickets available.

Opening this stadium was part of our broader economic development strategy to appeal to a younger generation, to attract entrepreneurs in the fast-growing esports industry, and to brand Arlington with a more modern vibe. We are excited to partner with Envy Gaming to play host to their home matches and to continue attracting esports and gaming events that will bring fans here from around the globe.”
