Our Flexible Franchise Offerings

Find An Option That Fits For You

Options to Bring Esports To Your City

We have programs to fit any need

When you meet with our franchise development team, our goal is to understand what your specific goals are and find a program that will fit for you. While our flagship centers work in most cities, we understand that there are several ways to provide an esports center experience for communities around the world.

Premium Offering

This is our standard, flagship offering of a full retail franchise. These locations are situated in cities with a minimum population of 50,000 and include at least one approved site target. Site targets are determined by the Contender Esports Real Estate team through a systematic demographic study.

Our premium offer locations are in standalone or strip mall areas and are around 2500-3000 square feet, including at least one party room.

Depending on the actual size, the centers average around 50 gaming stations per location. These centers build revenue on a strong membership model, regular events and tournaments, food and drink, merchandise, operating a city-wide Academy Team, and serving as a host city for the Contender Gaming Network National events.
