ATLANTA, GA – Georgia Governor Brian P. Kemp has announced that the headquarters for pro esports team Atlanta Reign will be built in Midtown Atlanta.
The new facility will create 45 jobs and bring an investment of $100,000,000 into the growing esports ecosystem in Atlanta.
The official release didn’t specify exactly where the new facility will be constructed, but local media reports point to a recently purchased commercial property in West Midtown Atlanta.
“We are proud to see Atlanta Reign expanding their footprint in Midtown with the opening of this new headquarters,” said Governor Kemp. “Atlanta is quickly becoming a hub for esports in the United States, and this announcement speaks to the strength of Georgia’s vibrant tech and entertainment industries.”
The project is backed by AEV (Atlanta Esports Ventures), a partnership between Cox Enterprises and Nevada-based Province, Inc. Atlanta Reign is owned by AEV and competes in the Overwatch League (OWL) as a member of the league’s Atlantic Division.
AEV has also announced Atlanta FaZe, a new franchise Call of Duty esports team.
