Dignitas has partnered with Verizon to open a 5G-powered esports facility in Los Angeles. This will be the first facility in the United States to use 5G. The facility will serve as the headquarters for Dignitas and as the area where their League of Legends players will practice and train for their designated esports competitions. Nicki Palmer, Chief Product Development Officer for Verizon released a statement regarding the new partnership:
With 5G’s fast speeds, high bandwidth and low latency, players will be able to do things like stream high-quality gameplay essentially in real-time, stay connected with fans on-the-go, and experience console quality multi-player gaming on their phones.
This new facility will be the second active one for Dignitas as they opened a training and content facility in Newark, NJ in June 2019.
Dignitas has undergone a big restructure over recent months with its ownership, Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, merging with Clutch Gaming. Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment also owns the Philadelphia 76ers and the New Jersey Devils.
Dignitas also made their return to CS:GO earlier this month with the announcement of the signing of four players from the infamous 87-0 NiP squad from the early days of CS:GO and Tim "nawwk" Jonasson.
