Nerd Street Gamers and Five Below to Open Three Esports Facilities
Nerd Street Gamers will open three of its Localhost esports facilities connected to Five Below stores. These openings are the initial pilot of a deal attached to Five Below’s participation in Nerd Street Gamers’ $12M Series A funding round last year. According to a release, the companies will develop learnings from this pilot to determine possible future rollout plans for additional locations.
The facilities will be connected to Five Below locations in Georgetown, Texas; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and St. Louis, Missouri – the latter of which will open later this month.
In addition to these facilities, Nerd Street Gamers operates Localhost facilities in Austin, Texas, Denver, Colorado, Los Angeles, California, and three locations in Philadelphia.
