Bart Blastein, owner of Showboat, said they wanted to have a facility that targeted the younger generation. Blastein said, “Gamers and esports is the largest sport in the world. It crosses all lines — male, female, all languages and backgrounds.”

The new facility will also have a sandlot beer that’s replacing a volleyball court that currently sits there. The beer garden will feature movies, live music, and family friendly.

The Atlantic City Fan Expo will be open weekends during the summer.
