Wednesday Night Fights (#WNF) comes to @ESALasVegas for pre-#EVO2018 event!
Last night, the Northern California fighting game community celebrated their first Wednesday Night Fights local at Oakland's Esports Arena. As of last night, WNF will run simultaneously at the Oakland Arena and its counterpart in Orange County.
It is not that common to hear of substantial turnouts at local events as opposed to majors, yet when Oakland's Esports Arena celebrated its grand union with WNF, there was literally not a single area inside the Arena that was vacant. WNF was birthed and ran for years in Southern California, before finally expanding into newer territory last night.
Upon the conclusion of WNF x ESA Oakland's first event, the FGC was greeted with another pleasant surprise. WNF is expanding once again, but this time, it is making a temporary sojourn to the Las Vegas Esports Arena on August 1st to host a local event in preparation for Evolution 2018!
The Vegas Arena officially opened near the end of March at the Luxor Hotel and Casino along South Las Vegas Boulevard. This marked Esports Arena's first expansion since the first Arena was erected in Orange County back in 2015. Other than with Oakland, plans for additional Arenas to be opened across the country have yet to be disclosed.
Wednesday Night Fights will run in the Vegas Esports Arena on August 1st as a prelude to the action that will unfold at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino later that weekend. For those who cannot make the trip, both of California's Esports Arenas will host viewing parties for the Vegas local.
(incidentally, tonight marks the final night to register for EVO 2018. The event takes place at Mandalay on August 3-5, 2018. Visit smash.gg/evo-2018 if you have yet to sign up!)
Taken from esportsarenavegas.com, willing participants can find the Vegas Arena at the following address:
Luxor Hotel & Casino
3900 S. Las Vegas Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV 89119
