Join the Georgia Esports League Saturday, Nov. 9 at the former Braves Stadium in downtown Atlanta for the largest intercollegiate esports event ever in Georgia!
The competition’s live, in-person finals will be held in the stadium’s University Club, and doors will open at 9 a.m Nov. 9. The event, running from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., is free and open to the public.
Held once each fall and spring semester, PantherLAN will include gameplay in “League of Legends,” “Hearthstone,” “Overwatch,” “Dragonball FighterZ,” “SMITE,” “Paladins” and “Brawlhalla,” and for the first time at PantherLAN, “Tekken.”
The event will also feature esports workshops, a bring-your-own-computer competition, tabletop gaming and an industry expo with companies and organizations from around the Atlanta area.
The November 2019 PantherLAN tournament will mark the first time that the stadium, originally built for the 1996 Olympic Games and later used by the Atlanta Braves before acquisition by Georgia State as home for its football team, has held a competition not related to an athletic event.
This year the competing schools include: Georgia Tech, Emory, Kennesaw State University, the University of Alabama, the University of North Georgia, the University of West Georgia, Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, Ga., and Mercer University.
