A new esports organisation named Equinox Esports has been launched in Oklahoma City.
Equinox will own professional teams that span multiple video game titles including VALORANT, League of Legends, and Super Smash Bros., among others. Equinox will produce unique in-house content in the form of podcasts, broadcasts, tournaments, video content, and articles out of its newly-build 6000 square foot facility in north Oklahoma City. The space also will function as a performance center for local, aspiring esports athletes.
“Esports is an exciting and growing industry with a rabid fan base. Oklahoma City prides itself on being the ‘Modern Frontier,’ and we are excited to jump into this modern business. With all our unique combination of skills, we plan to change the game in Oklahoma,” Chad Ford, president of Equinox, said.
“There was a need for esports in Oklahoma, and finding the right team to pull this off was key. Community and competition are key to our success. There is already so much in the pipeline, and we can’t wait to share it with everyone,” Chris Aguilar, general manager of Equinox, said.
