Cash In on a $1 BILLION Dollar Industry
You’ve heard the craze around the world for competitive games like Fortnite, League of Legends, CS:GO, Call of Duty … and so many more. Almost 200 Universities are now offering scholarships to gamers and tournaments are broadcast on primetime TV. Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, bought an eSports team. So did Mark Cuban. And Ashton Kutcher, Magic Johnson, A-Rod, The Philadelphia 76ers … you get the picture. Esports is a global phenomenon.
Contender eSports is the first franchise in the world to provide high-end gaming centers for these players.
As a location owner, you can bring to your city an entertainment destination that includes console gaming (XBox and PS4, generally for 8-15 year olds), as well as PC Games (generally for 16-35 year olds). We tend to lean towards PC Gamers. These centers generate revenue for you through hourly gameplay, monthly club memberships, tournaments, summer camps, training sessions with professional esports gamers, food, and merchandise. Become a franchisee and secure your locations today!
