KJK’s Esports Attorneys, Scott Norcross and Paige Rabatin, were in Miami, Florida last week as plans were revealed for what will become the “largest indoor multi-sport facility in North America.” The 820,000 square-foot, 20-acre facility, named “Destination Sport Miami” will contain:
- An esports arena
- An NFL regulation turf football field
- An Olympic swimming pool
- A 25-yard warm water therapy pool
- An indoor surf machine,
- 11 USTA tennis courts
- 2 NHL regulation ice hockey rinks
- 36 volleyball courts
- A 15,000 square-foot fitness center
- A spa
- Restaurants and party rooms
Norcross and Rabatin are directing plans for the esports program that will be located within the facility. They continue to work extensively with Destination Sport Miami to develop facility concepts such as gaming hubs and a designated esports arena.
Top names in their respective sports will lead divisions at Destination Sport Miami to educate young athletes, including Livian Hernandez (baseball), Randy Moss (football), Bryan Trottier (hockey), U.S. Women’s National Soccer coach Jill Ellis, and former Miami Heat player Glen Rice (All were also present at the unveiling).
Norcross and Rabatin were approached as professionals in the esports industry to consultant on design concepts (along with architects at OSPORTS), identify sponsorship opportunities, develop programming, and suggest how the space could be used for different events. The two will continue to be involved as the project develops to provide expertise on aspects such as staffing and the esports facility’s general business model.
