The North American-based esports brand Team SoloMid (TSM) are building a massive, USD 13 million, 25000 square foot esports training facility in Playa Vista, Los Angeles. The facility is set to open in February 2020.
The new facility will feature streaming and gaming room, a fitness studio, a wellness center, coaching rooms, a full-time sports psychologist on site, and more. According to TSM, it will be the largest esports training center in North America, and will be the first esports center to feature both a wellness center and a fitness studio.
TSM HQ will house the entire TSM organization and operation. This means all the players and coaches from all their esports divisions will train there, and all the employees will work in the space.
Team SoloMid was founded in 2009 by Reginald and his brother as SoloMid.net, and began competing in 2011 during the first League of Legends competitive season. Since then, the organization has been a mainstay in North American LCS, winning six splits since 2013. They remained in the North American LCS when the league moved to a franchised model in 2018.
Apart from League of Legends, Team SoloMid has also expanded into Fortnite, Apex Legends, Rocket League, PUBG, Smash Bros, Hearthstone, and Magic: the Gathering.
