HyperX and Allied Esports said they will continue to partner on co-branded experiences and events at the arena.

HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas opened in March 2018. It serves as an esports venue and a production facility and has hosted more than 500 events, including weekly tournaments and broadcasts such as “Frags featuring Fortnite” and “Saturday Night Speedway,” in which players compete at Mario Kart 8.

The arena hosted more than 300,000 visitors in 2019, the two companies said.

“HyperX is excited to retain the naming rights sponsorship of the HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas as a sign of our commitment and dedication to esports and the gaming community,” Daniel Kelley, director of marketing for HyperX, said in a statement. “Allied Esports is a key partner for us, proving their ability to be a best-in-class esports destination, and we look forward to continued success with them.”
