The arena is intended to open to the general public in November, with the first event planned to be the Halo Championship Series Open Circuit from November 18-20.

There’ll be a 400-500 person arena that will host both live, in-person tournaments in addition to viewing parties, and features streaming facilities and casting stations too as Millennial Esports hopes to foster the careers of new casters as well as players.
