“My guess is when they are going to be able to completely open this up, it’s going to be jam-packed full of people, playing but also learning,” Kelly said. Congresswoman Sharice Davids, D-KS, and Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly and others checked out the space Thursday night. LEVELUP will have several after school esports educational programs, helping prepare K-12 students for more than 180 colleges offering scholarships across the country. They have broadcast studios for streaming and expect to host many tournaments for competitive gamers hoping to qualify for the 2024 Olympics.

“It’s the fastest growing market in the world. A ($90) billion industry, and it just keeps doubling every year,” co-owner Joshua Garr said. “It’s way beyond what I was even expecting,” 15-year-old Aidan O’Neill said.

The esports arena boasts the newest, fastest processors for gaming, and for some players, there’s a chance to actually see who they’re usually competing against online.  “Coming here is an experience you don’t get at home. Plus, obviously the atmosphere is way better than your basement,” Garr joked. They also will cater to less-avid gamers who might be just as interested in the Gametime District’s revamped bars and restaurants. It’s home to Gametime Bar & Grill, Vivo Music Venue and EXP Bar. Bar and food service is also available inside the arena. 

“We’ll feature every event you can think of. We’ll have Call of Duty, Valorant, all the way down to Mario Kart, Smash Bros,” Garr said. Kansas City Pioneers taking the esports world by storm, winning over younger fans
