unique, exciting and entertaining,” said Simon Temperley, Chief Revenue
and Marketing Officer at Allied Esports. “Giving talented Las Vegas
community players the opportunity to compete against and maybe even beat
some of the world’s top players on the HyperX Esports Arena stage is a
tremendous way to grow the competitive gaming scene at the grassroots
