Simplicity Esports and Gaming Company Announces Raised Guidance for Number of Esports Gaming Centers from 50 to 85 by the end of 2020

Simplicity Esports and Gaming Company (WINR) (“Simplicity Esports”) announced today that it expects to have 85 esports gaming centers by the end of 2020.

Jed Kaplan, CEO of Simplicity Esports, stated, “We’ve had a significant surge in the number of qualified franchisee applicants since the PLAYlive Nation acquisition. We believe our nationwide footprint of esports gaming centers provides potential franchisees an attractive opportunity to co-invest, alongside Simplicity Esports, and actively engage in the esports industry at a time when there are limited options for investing in esports companies.”

“We expect to have 55 locations in operation by the end of 2019, and 85 locations in operation by the end of 2020. We are exceeding prior expectations as Simplicity Esports continues to be the largest nationwide footprint of esports gaming centers in North America. We anticipate each of our future franchised locations will measure between 2,000 and 3,500 sq. ft. with 30 to 40 video gaming stations, and will include designated areas for parties, tabletop gaming, and merchandise.”
