With a mission to entertain, educate, and inspire people, The Museum of Future Sports will make its way to San Francisco as the esports industry is expected to top $1 billion in revenue in 2019. The point of the museum is to bring people together so they can enjoy competition and gaming with some of the best technology available, combining the next generation of sports and social gaming.
With abundant growth annually, it is not surprising that companies are aiming to market alongside esports, which brings together a perfect mix of competition, technology, and entertainment.
The Museum of Future Sports is set to open June 1, 2019 in a hub that grosses over 100,000 square feet in the heart of downtown San Francisco. There will also be two launch events at the pop-up location, the first being a family-friendly daytime event that focuses on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) subjects. The second will be an evening extravaganza that appeals to a crowd over the age of 21.
The museum will feature what is known as future sports, which includes drone racing, video games, robot competitions, and virtual reality esports.
Several leagues have grown in the virtual reality realm that are sometimes sponsored by Oculus and ESL. The MoFs will host a VR sports competition at the venue in San Francisco.
The museum will also be filled with a family lounge, VR selfie booth, and beginner drone training. The VR selfie booth will put users into their favorite VR game and the museum will create a short selfie video that the guest can share on their social media.
The Museum of Future Sports will be located at the intersections of 10 S. Van Ness and Market Street. You can find more information about the museum on their website here.
